By Ivy Jensen

POLICE are speaking to the driver of a B-double after he allegedly caused a 4WD dual cab to plough into a tree in Echuca south.

The truck is believed to have rear-ended the Nissan Navara about 4pm, causing it to lose control and smash into a tree on Ogilvie Ave. 

A witness said the B-double kept driving, but had stopped at the Crossenvale shops where Campaspe Highway Patrol officers are now speaking to the driver.

Paramedics have taken a man aged in his 40s to Echuca hospital. His injuries are unknown.
