A MALE driver has been taken to Bendigo Hospital after a four-car collision at a roundabout in Bendigo’s CBD.
According to police, the driver appeared to lose control, colliding with a moving car as well as two parked vehicles.
Bendigo Police Sergeant Mick McCrann said the incident happened around midday Monday at the intersection of Myers and Chapel streets.
“It appears that one vehicle has lost control with a young child on board, approximately less than one year old,” he said.

“The male driver has chest pain, maybe as a result of a medical condition, which may have led to the collision.”
Sergeant McCrann said the male driver, driving a Mitsubishi, hit a parked Nissan Patrol which then rolled into a Holden car outside lighting business The Light House.
“The car could have possibly already been out of control. It has glanced off a commodore, gone down an embankment and hit a parking vehicle,” he said.
“The collision has occurred on the actual roundabout.
“The vehicle travelled some 30 metres.”
Sergeant McCrann said the male driver was taken to hospital, suffering from a chest injury.
He said the child was also taken to hospital as a precaution.
Sergeant McCrann said witnesses at the scene were quick to call emergency services when the incident occurred.
