Police believe a car crashed at Euroa yesterday morning after the driver tried to avoid a fallen branch.

Benalla police Highway Patrol Leading Senior Constable Neville Gathercole said a woman was travelling west on Drysdale Rd when she crashed just before 10am.

‘‘What we think has happened is a branch has fallen from a tree and a lady travelling west along the road has gone to drive around the branch and lost control,’’ Sen Const Gathercole said.

‘‘Drysdale Rd is gravel and the shoulder of the road is quite loose, so it didn’t take much. She stayed in the car until help arrived and we cut the driver’s side door off and got her out for paramedics to look at.’’

An Ambulance Victoria spokesperson said the woman was taken to Shepparton’s Goulburn Valley Base Hospital with head and arm lacerations.
