Shepparton Highway Patrol Leading Senior Constable Garry Russell said a Shepparton man was travelling south along Sidebottom Rd in a white Holden utility and a Katandra West man was travelling east on Marionvale Rd in a white Ford utility, when the vehicles collided at 12.50
Leading Sen Const Russell said the Holden utility landed on its roof in a nearby channel and the driver was trapped for a short time, before Katandra West Country Fire Authority personnel retrieved him.
