One man has died following a crash on the Bendigo–Murchison Rd, east of the township of Rushworth at 8.50am.
Emergency services attended the scene following a report the driver was trapped in the car.
Sergeant Paul Nicoll said a deceased male was found in the vehicle. He said the car had been travelling in an easterly direction towards Murchison when it rolled and hit a tree.
“We had a shocking year in the shire Campaspe area last year for fatal motor vehicle accidents,” Sgt Nicoll said.
“This year we’d only had one (fatal crash) and this is the second for the year. It’s not a good start, we’re only in the second month, but hopefully we’re not going to get any more for the rest of the year … but I’m not holding my hopes too high.
We’re still half way through Christmas periods and coming up to Easter …. motorists need to take care on the road, keep the speed down, wear your seat belts and don’t drink and drive. And just do the right thing, you’ll all ways get there, (maybe) not as quick as you anticipate, but you’ll always get there.”
