Investigations are ongoing after a man died following a collision on Clarkes Road at Hazelwood North on Monday.
Police said the 43-year-old man died at the scene after his car collided with an elevated embankment about 4.40pm on Monday.
Investigators said the station wagon was travelling at a “very fast” speed when it crossed Sanders Road before it struck the embankment.
The passenger, a 38-year-old Traralgon woman who was known to the man, was flown to the Royal Melbourne hospital in a critical condition.
Police have charged a Traralgon woman who is alleged to have stolen prescription medication.
The 51-year-old Traralgon woman was charged with unauthorised access of a computer database with intent to commit a serious offence, including burglary and theft.
The charges follow a three-month investigation into the woman who works in the medical sector.
She is expected to face court later this year.
