Police are appealing for motorists to drive to conditions, after a series of crashes in the Northern Midlands.

Eight vehicles and one bus were involved in three separate crashes in Longford shortly after 8am this morning.

Illawarra Road was blocked between the Bass Highway and Midland Highway for several hours while the scenes were cleared.

Investigations into the cause of the collisions are now underway.

Officers have reinforced if it's wet and there's fog, slow down and be mindful of other road users.
