BP pulls national tanker fleet (AAP)

BP has pulled its entire tanker fleet off Australian roads after a fatal accident in Victoria.

Forty-two tankers belonging to BP and contractors will stay off the road indefinitely while investigations continue into the accident near Wodonga on Thursday that killed a boy and two women.

BP says it is working with investigators into the cause of the crash.

There shouldn't be any disruptions in fuel delivery, BP said.

On Thursday BP took all its Victorian petrol tankers off the road after the four-year-old boy, his mother and another woman died when a trailer came loose and smashed into two cars.

BP said it was incredibly saddened by the loss of life and the company is working fully with investigators, as is the driver of the truck involved.

"While the precise cause of this tragic incident may not be known for some time, it is essential we do all that we can to understand how this occurred and to ensure that it cannot happen again," BP Australia president Andy Holmes said.
