Three children under the age of 10 and two women have been seriously injured in a head-on collision on the Princes Highway.
A sedan collided head on with a ute on the highway just outside Traralgon, in the La Trobe Valley, on Saturday evening. The driver of the sedan, a 32-year-old woman, was airlifted to hospital while the driver of the ute, a 29-year-old woman, was transported by road.
The three children, who were passengers in the ute, were airlifted to the Royal Children's Hospital. Police are appealing for dashcam footage and witnesses.
