Paramedics load a man onto a helicopter after he was injured in a car crash at Moorilim yesterday.

A 23-year-old Shepparton man was airlifted to Melbourne after his car struck a tree at Moorilim yesterday.

The man was airlifted to The Alfred hospital in Melbourne after his car left the road while travelling west on Murchison-Violet Town Rd, near Flynns Rd, just before 9am, a Victoria Police spokeswoman said.

The man was the sole occupant of the vehicle.

An Ambulance Victoria spokesman said the man was thrown from the vehicle and he received head and internal injuries.

He was airlifted to The Alfred in a critical condition, and was late yesterday in a critical, but stable condition.

Meanwhile, in a separate incident, the occupant of an Anne St, Mooroopna home was fortunate not to be hurt after a Mitsubishi Magna collided with the house.

The occupant was inside the loungeroom when the car hit the property about 3.30pm.

Shepparton Highway Patrol and Tatura State Emergency Service attended the collision.
