A car carrying three people on their way to a camping holiday rolled after the driver tried to avoid a spare tyre on Goulburn Valley Fwy.

Nagambie police Sergeant Graeme Callaghan said police were called to the single-car crash about 12.20pm on Saturday.

Sgt Callaghan said it was believed the driver of the Holden utility, 54, was travelling north before he swerved to avoid the tyre, causing the car to roll several times.

Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman Gabrielle Degenhardt said the driver was airlifted to Royal Melbourne Hospital with head and chest injuries.

She said the two male passengers, aged 22 and 23, sustained head injuries and abrasions and were transported to Shepparton’s Goulburn Valley Base Hospital.
