REGIONAL Roads Victoria will consider whether the intersection where a car and a truck collided this morning can be improved.
It comes after Kyneton residents, including relatives of a woman injured in the crash, encouraged efforts to prevent further crashes in the area.
A resident said he was aware of about three serious crashes at the intersection of Edgecombe Road and Melville Drive.
The Department of Transport is believed to have recorded two in the five years to mid-2019.
The resident said there had been calls to install turning lanes at the intersection, which is at the entrance to Kyneton Bushland Resort.
Relatives of the car's driver, who was airlifted to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, said they would support "whatever will prevent another accident".
Police are still investigating the cause of the collision.
"Our thoughts are with the people involved in this terrible crash," Barry Green, Regional Roads Victoria's acting northern region director, said.
"We'll be working closely with local police to better understand the circumstances of this crash and to see if any safety improvements can be made at this intersection."
Site inspections and detailed engineering investigations would be required before any changes could be made to roads in the area.
A WOMAN airlifted to the Royal Melbourne Hospital after a crash near Kyneton remains in a stable condition.

Police at the scene said said the woman was very lucky. She was not believed to have sustained life-threatening injuries.
The car the woman was driving was extensively damaged. The truck was also impacted, with a fuel tank leaking diesel after the crash.
However, none of the cooking oil the truck was carrying spilled.
Police have called for anyone with information about a crash on the outskirts of Kyneton to come forward as they piece together what happened.
