The M1 had to be closed southbound at Morisset for about four hours as emergency services responded to a serious truck crash.

A B-double crashed into the back of a slow-moving line marking truck near the Mandalong Road exit just after 11pm last night, blocking all southbound lanes.

It caused a large oil spill, with about 400 litres of diesel covering 300 metres of road.

Thankfully both truck drivers weren't injured.

Both returned negative breath tests.

The freeway was re-opened to traffic just after 3am.
