Driver fights for life after three-car crash
A man is fighting for life after a three-car smash in Melbourne's outer west early on Monday.
Police are investigating the crash in Truganina, which is believed to have happened when
the driver of a green Mitsubishi lost control and crashed into a silver Holden being driven in the opposite direction.
The Mitsubishi then crashed into a silver Toyota, also travelling in the opposite direction on Leakes Road about 5.30am, a police spokeswoman said.
The Mitsubishi's driver, a 31-year-old man from Tarneit, is in the Royal Melbourne Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the Toyota, aged 35 and also from Tarneit, is in a stable condition in the Western Hospital in Footscray.
The driver of the Holden, aged 53, was not injured.
Meanwhile, a woman is in a critical condition in The Alfred hospital after she was hit by a car on the Mornington Peninsula.
Police believe that a ute hit the woman when it was travelling east on the Baxter-Tooradin Road just before 6.30pm.
The woman, aged 52, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The ute’s driver, a 48-year-old man from Baxter, is assisting police with their inquiries.
Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding either crash. Anyone with information is asked to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
