McIvor Times - - NEWS -

A WO­MAN has died fol­low­ing a head-on col­li­sion at Pya­long on Mon­day.

It is be­lieved a ve­hi­cle was trav­el­ling along the North­ern Hwy about 4.45pm when it veered onto the other side of the road and col­lided head-on with an­other car.

Po­lice are yet to es­tab­lish the ex­act cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the col­li­sion.

The male driver and sole oc­cu­pant of the first car has been air­lifted to hos­pi­tal with se­ri­ous in­juries.

A fe­male driver of the sec­ond ve­hi­cle, who was also the sole oc­cu­pant, died at the scene.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­mains on­go­ing.

Traf­fic di­ver­sions were set up on the North­ern Hwy which was closed in both di­rec­tions south of Moores Lane for sev­eral hours.

Any­one who wit­nessed the col­li­sion is urged to con­tact Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 or sub­mit a con­fi­den­tial crime re­port at www.crimestop­persvic.com.au

Lives lost on Vic­to­rian roads now sit at 175 for 2017, com­pared with 203 for the same time last year.

PO­LICE are call­ing for help to catch two driv­ers who were spot­ted do­ing burnouts along the McIvor Hwy be­tween GoornongBar­nad­own Rd and the Axedale town­ship.

It is be­lieved the driv­ers had just left a meet at Heath­cote Park Race­way when they stopped to do burnouts along the road, caus­ing de­lays for traf­fic in the area.

The two cars were later spot­ted again do­ing more burnouts along the McIvor Hwy, at Lon­glea Lane in Lon­glea, with around nine cars hav­ing to stop to avoid them.

The cars in­volved are be­lieved to be a white Holden ute with stick­ers on the side and a gold Holden Com­modore, with a white 4WD tow­ing an­other car on a trailer be­lieved to be with the pair but not tak­ing part in the burnouts.

Po­lice are urg­ing any­one who wit­nessed the burnouts to con­tact Lead­ing Se­nior Con­sta­ble Brian Smith on 5448 1360.
