Two people aged in their 70s were flown to Melbourne hospitals after an accident near Rushworth this morning.
The single-vehicle accident occurred about 9.15am when the couple’s Toyota Landcruiser four-wheel drive smashed into a bridge on McEwen Rd at Waranga Shores, about 7km north of Rushworth.
The couple, who are believed to have recently moved to the district, were trapped for 35 minutes while SES units from Rushworth and Tatura worked to free them.
Ambulance crews from Kyabram, Shepparton and Murchison stabilized the people.
One was flown to hospital with leg injuries and the other with chest injuries.
The accident caused extensive damage to the car and forced the closure of McEwen Rd.
Police are yet to determine the cause of the accident and plan to speak to the driver.
