Two females escaped serious injury following a two-car crash at the intersection of the Midland Hwy and Tatura-Undera Rd at 1.21pm.

Police, fire brigade and ambulance officers attended the crash.

The crash involved a Mitsubishi Magna and a Holden Astra.

Senior Constable Robert Guglielmi of the State Highway Patrol said the sole female occupants of each vehicle were lucky to escape serious injury.

He said the Holden was travelling east on the Midland Hwy towards Shepparton and the Mitsubishi was turning right from the highway towards Undera when they collided.

Sen Const Guglielmi said road conditions were damp at the time of the accident.

‘‘The driver of the Mitsubishi was treated at the scene for minor injuries and shock by ambulance officers, while the driver of the other vehicle suffered shock,’’ he said.

‘‘We are still investigating the circumstances of the accident, but it would appear that the driver of the Mitsubishi simply turned in front of the Holden.’’

Sergeant Darryl Phillips of Tatura police directed traffic around the accident scene for about an hour before both vehicles, which were extensively damaged, could be removed.
