Gridlock hit Melbourne's south-east early Monday morning after a good Samaritan was struck and hit on the Monash.

The woman was killed just after 3am in Endeavour Hills, when she stepped out of her car to assist a woman who was seriously injured after a crash only moments earlier.

Good Samaritan dies in Monash Freeway crash

Police closed off inbound lanes between Heatherton Road and Stud Road shortly after with delays expected throughout the day.

Brad Arnold from the Department of Transport has advised drivers to plan ahead, and instead use alternative routes, including the Princes Highway if coming through Hallam, Eumemmerring and Doveton.

"Delays are building very quickly, especially for the South Gippsland Freeway...people should find an alternative, Frankston Dandenong Road, or even East Link, but allow plenty of time"

The woman involved in the earlier crash is recovering in hospital, while the driver who struck the good Samaritan is cooperating with police.

The re-opening of the Monash Freeway is under the control of Victoria Police and will open once that investigation is complete.
