Police have advised the men are the driver of the car and a passenger.

Another man in his 20s and a man believed to be in his 50s were left with minor injuries.

At least three people appear in the footage to have been placed in handcuffs and put in the back of a police van.

However, Victoria Police has not confirmed any arrests.

The Vinnies truck can be seen on its side across two lanes of the road.

Police have said it is understood the car collided with the truck about 10.35am.

The crash occurred in the outbound lanes on the bridge, where three lanes are closed.

One inbound lane has also been closed.

Traffic delays are quickly mounting along on the busy motorway, with motorists advised to avoid the area and use Geelong Road to get to the M80 Ring Road interchange instead of the West Gate Freeway.
