Emergency services were called to reports of a tree falling on a car travelling along the Warburton Highway in Wandin North on Friday 16 August.

The incident occurred about 11am and required police to divert traffic along Victoria Road.

A spokesperson from Ambulance Victoria confirmed that while paramedics were called to the scene, there were no reports of injuries and nobody was taken to hospital.

A member of Lilydale Police wished to thank passers-by who stopped to check on the welfare of the woman in the crushed car.

They noted that some community members who happened to be carrying a chainsaw helped to cut and remove the tree.

A tow truck driver appeared at the scene before emergency services had arrived.

Snow chains

Yarra Ranges police are reminding those heading to the snow to clip on their tyre chains for the journey.

Visitors heading for the snow must have snow chains available when going to the snow fields.

Police wish to advise drivers to ensure their chains are fitted correctly and are of good quality.

Several drivers have been notified by police that their chains have been poorly fitted or had been damaged.

Police will be intercepting any vehicles that do not have chains fitted where required.
