Carnage: A blue Mazda lost its roof in a five-car collision near Yarrawonga yesterday.


Yarrawonga police Sergeant John Higgins said the crash occurred on Benalla-Yarrawonga Rd about 30km south of Yarrawonga about 2.30pm.

Four of the five cars were severely damaged, including a blue Mazda sedan that lost its roof.

A silver four-wheel-drive carrying a young family of six was also involved.

Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman Gabrielle Degenhardt said a man, 74, was airlifted to The Alfred hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Three women, two who are believed to be a mother and daughter, were taken to Yarrawonga Base Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Sgt Higgins said the cause of the crash was yet to be determined.

‘‘We’re making inquiries as to how the collision or possible collisions have occurred,’’ he said.

‘‘This is just a timely reminder that all motorists should be vigilant on the road of the atmospheric conditions and everything around them. Driving cars on our road isn’t something to be taken for granted.’’
