Man dies following two-car collision in Barnadown last December

A man has died in hospital following a two-car collision at Barnadown in December last year.

The collision occurred at the intersection of Epsom-Barnadown Road and Axedale-Goornong Road about 12.20pm on December 21.

The 71-year-old driver from Boondall, Queensland, was the driver of a silver Ford sedan when it crashed into a black Ford four-wheel drive.

He was airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries and has since died in hospital.

His female passenger sustained serious injuries and was also taken to hospital for treatment.

The two occupants of four-wheel drive sustained minor injuries and were treated at the scene.

At the time, Bendigo Sergeant Mick McCrann said a silver Ford carrying a Queensland couple was travelling on Epsom-Barnadown Road when it crossed the Axedale-Goornong Road intersection and struck a vehicle heading north. He said it appeared the sedan driver was unfamiliar with the road.

Bendigo Highway Patrol members are investigating.
