Three People Killed On Victoria's Roads On Father's Day

Three people have lost their lives in just one horror Father's Day on Victoria's roads.

At 4:30am on Sunday a monkey bike rider left the roadway on Kurunjang Drive near Melton.

The 20-year-old from Kurunjang died at the scene while police are still investigating the cause.

At 2pm a vehicle was travelling along the South Gippsland Highway at Lang Lang when it veered across the other side of the road and collided with a car heading in the other direction.

The female driver of the car that was struck died at the scene while the male driver of the first car was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

A third car went off the road after swerving to avoid the crash – thankfully no one in that vehicle was injured.

Tragedy struck again a little over 90 minutes later at Woori Yallock in the Yarra Ranges.

It's believed a car was travelling along Healesville-Koo Wee Rup Road when it lost control around a bend and collided with another vehicle at about 3:40pm.

The female driver driver of the first vehicle sustained minor injuries, while her male passenger died at the scene.

The man behind the wheel of the other car wasn't seriously injured. 

174 lives have now been lost on the state's roads in 2017, compared with 202 the same time last year.
