Overturned: A Dookie man travelling in a sedan was killed after colliding with a truck at Grahamvale yesterday morning.
Police said yesterday’s crash occurred as a man, 61, was travelling west in a sedan on Ford Rd, Shepparton and a Shepparton truck driver, 43, was travelling north on Grahamvale Rd.
Shepparton police Detective Senior Sergeant David Bowler said the vehicles collided just before 8
‘‘The vehicle has entered the intersection and the truck has collected it,’’ Det Sen Sgt Bowler said.
‘‘The sedan has sustained major damage and appears to have rolled a number of times.’’
Det Sen Sgt Bowler said the driver of the sedan died at the scene and the truck driver was taken to Goulburn Valley Base Hospital with minor injuries.
He said investigations were ongoing, but speed and alcohol had been ruled out as contributing factors.
Det Sen Sgt Bowler said the crash was tragic.
‘‘It’s always disappointing when we lose a life on the road,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s a timely reminder to everyone out there to heed the road safety message and to take care when entering intersections like this.’’
