A woman has been charged over a fatal crash that killed four friends in regional Victoria.

The 64-year-old Stawell driver will face court on Friday charged with four counts of culpable driving causing death over the crash in Navarre on May 5.

Police say the women were on their way home from a line-dancing event when they were T-boned on an isolated stretch of road.

Two Hamilton women, aged 75 and 74, a Portland woman, 72, and a 64-year-old Heywood woman died.

Assistant Commissioner Doug Fryer told reporters after the crash that two of the women were holding hands as they died from internal injuries.

"Seeing that scene, it was horrific ... four women who looked like they were just asleep, so they've died from internal injuries," he said at the time.

The other driver was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The woman has been bailed to appear in Ballarat Magistrates Court on Friday for a preliminary filing hearing.
