Victoria police have charged one person over the shooting death of a man in the moments after a vehicle crash at Geelong.
The incident occurred on the Princes Highway at Corio about 6am on Saturday, police said.
Police believe the shooting was a targeted attack.
A silver station wagon with a driver and two passengers turned onto a service road to access the highway, when a truck hit it and caused extensive damage.
Then the occupant of another vehicle, which had been following the silver car, approached the crash and allegedly fired a gun at the occupants before fleeing.
A 43-year-old Corio man died at the scene from gunshot wounds.
Two other men - aged 25 and 26 - were taken to Geelong University Hospital with minor injuries sustained in the crash.
Police on Sunday night said a 26-year-old Corio man had been interviewed by detectives and charged with murder.
He was remanded in custody and will appear at Geelong Magistrates' Court on Monday.
A 25-year-old Corio man who was assisting police was released pending further inquires.
The truck driver was not injured.
