Campaspe Highway Patrol has appealed for witnesses after a head-on-collision killed two people on Sunday morning.
A 75-year-old man from Birchip and a 41-year-old woman from Gunbower died at the scene of the crash at Leitchville on the Murray Valley Highway.
The crash which happened at about 10.45am caused one of the vehicles to overturn and catch fire.
Both the woman and the man were the sole occupants of the vehicles they were driving.
Police have asked for anyone who may have witnessed the driving of the white late model Jeep 4WD prior to the collision to come forward.
It is believed the vehicle, in which the woman was driving, was in Cohuna at about 10.15am before it traveled down the Murray Valley Highway towards Gunbower.
Police have asked anyone who witnessed the white Jeep or who has dash cam footage to contact them.
Police have also been told a number of motorists pulled over just after the crash, and have appealed to them to come forward.
