An air ambulance was seen and numerous ambulances and police vehicles are on site. A police Land Rover was in collision with a white van on Footscray Road.

Road blocked. Buses were sitting at nearby stop without moving

There are conflicting reports on the exact post office and whether it is one in New Eltham or elsewhere.

Police have closed the road and buses are on diversion.
