In-bound lanes on the Eastern Freeway have reopened after a 12 hour shutdown.

The freeway was closed in-bound near Bulleen Road after a crash that’s left two people fighting for life in hospital.

A white Subaru Impreza, which was carrying four people, smashed into a barrier on the Eastern Freeway, in-bound near Bulleen Road just before 11pm last night.

The impact of the crash was so great it dislodged a two tonne concrete barrier.

All four occupants were taken to hospital. Two of the four are in a critical condition.

The right in-bound and out-bound lanes remain closed, but all other lanes have now reopened.

Police would like to speak to anyone who saw the crash or has dash camera footage.
