Traffic banked up behind the crash, which blocked all three lanes of traffic.
Impatient drivers were spotted performing U-Turns across the median strip to return the way they came.
Victoria Traffic urged anybody in the area to plan ahead.
‘Consider using the M80 Ring Road, Boundary Road and Fitzgerald Road to return to the freeway,’ a spokesman said.
The freeway is closed Geelong-bound.
