Three people have been injured after two cars collided on the corner of Chapel and Parnell Rds in Muckatah just after midday on Friday, March 11.

A 28-year-old Barooga woman has been airlifted to the Royal Melbourne Hospital with serious injuries, while her passenger was taken by ambulance to Goulburn Valley Health.

The other driver, a 27-year-old Cobram East Man, was also transporte­d by ambulance to GV Health with significan­t injuries.

The Barooga woman was travelling south on Chapel Rd in her black Toyota Hilux with her passenger when it collided with a black Nissan Navara driven by the Cobram East man, who was driving east on Parnell Rd, which is a dirt road.

The Navara struck the Hilux on the driver’s side door, which run off the paved road on the southeast side of the intersecti­on, through a paddock fence and into a deep channel drain.

Police said the impact indicated both vehicles were travelling about 100km/h.

Police have urged the public to take care on these roads and drive to the speeds conditions allow.
