Two killed in collision

Two people have died following a two-vehicle collision at Euston this morning. 

The crash happened about 6.40am when a Volkswagen Passat travelling north on Murray Valley Highway, Euston, and a Holden Colorado travelling south collided in the southbound lanes. 

The driver and front passenger of the Volkswagen, both believed to be women aged in their 20s, were airlifted to a hospital in Melbourne in a serious condition.

An Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman said both women had suspected back, neck and leg injuries. 

The two rear passengers died at the scene.

The driver and sole-occupant of the Holden, a woman aged in her 20s, was taken to Mildura Base Hospital with minor injuries.

Officers from Barrier Police District attended and a crime scene was established. 

Detectives will investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash and anyone with information or dash cam footage is urged to come forward.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.
