A Langwarrin woman died after a two-car collision on the Northern Hwy near Elmore earlier today.

The woman, 72, and a male passenger, 78, both of Langwarrin were travelling south on the Northern Hwy when the accident happened at 10.30am.

A truck, driven east by an Elmore man, 60, along the Runnymede School Rd crashed into the car, killing the woman.

Echuca Police Sergeant Della Nihill said police believed the Elmore man failed to give way at the intersection.

Sgt Nihill said the 78-year-old male was taken to a Bendigo hospital with minor injuries. The Elmore man was unhurt.

Police diverted traffic around the Northern Hwy site for several hours while the accident was cleared.

Sgt Nihill said the Elmore man was helping police with their investigations and no charges had been laid yet.

The death is the fourth on Victorian roads in 2013, down from nine at the same time last year.
