One dead and teenager fighting for life after single-car smash
Several young people have been left injured in separate car smashes across the State overnight.
A single-vehicle smash in western Victoria this morning has left one person dead and a teenager fighting for their life.
Police said a car was travelling on Mount Baimbridge Road at Hamilton at around 3:00am when the driver lost control and rolled the vehicle a number of times before it stopped against a power pole.
The survivor of the smash, a 19-year-old man, has been flown to Melbourne with critical head injures and fractures.
The Victoria Police Major Collision Investigation Unit is heading to the scene.
The death brings the state's road toll to 261 - eight fewer than for the same time last year.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit www.crimestoppers.com.au.
On the Mornington Peninsula, an unlicenced 17-year-old girl was behind the wheel of a car when it smashed into a pole, leaving three occupants seriously injured.
Police are investigating whether alcohol was a factor in the Campsie Court in Somers crash which occurred at around 4:30am.
The driver and two men have been taken to hospital with serious injuries, while an 18-year-old woman escaped with minor injuries.
A 22-year-old man will be flown to Melbourne with serious chest injuries. A 17-year-old girl has been taken to Frankston Hospital with serious head, neck, back and internal injuries. And a 21-year-old man has been taken to the Alfred Hospital in a serious condition.
In Moonee Ponds, a couple has been forced to relocate after a car ran through their property's fence and into a common wall between two terrace houses on Margaret Street.
A gas metre was also damaged, and MFB crews spent five hours securing the properties. No one was injured.
Police have issued the driver, a man in his 20s, a penalty notice for failing to give way.
No sympathy from me on these crashes, and if alcohol is involved, hope they are arrested charged. Ken Lay or his Deputy, no doubt , will say as Police chiefs have been saying for deades - " the message is just not getting through". Wrong! The message is loud and clear - "you can drink and drive dangerously, and no Magistrate or judge will penalize you harshly, or even penalize you according to the law" - message us as clear as crystal.Joe Logan Friday 7 December, 2012 - 9:29 AM
