Police are investigating the cause of a horror crash at Rosedale on Friday which claimed the life of a 45 year-old woman and young girl from the Northern Territory.
An 11 year-old child this morning remained in a critical condition in the Royal Children’s Hospital.
A four-year-old sustained minor injuries, while a man aged in his 40s and the driver of another vehicle, a 20 year-old Denison man, were airlifted to The Alfred on Friday in a critical condition.
According to police, the two vehicles collided head on while travelling on the Princes Highway near Cricket Street, just before 2.30pm.
Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Bob Hill spoke out in sadness after hearing of the incident.
“This really brings it home, this is not about figures, its about the impact that incidents like this have on families and the community,” he said.
