Four other occupants of the vehicle were taken to Goulburn Valley Health hospital for treatment.
In a separate incident, another female driver failed to negotiate a road bend, lost control and hit a tree at Merbein just before midnight.
The female driver, and only occupant of the vehicle, died at the scene.
