TWO people have been taken to hospital following a two-car crash near Goornong.
Emergency services were called to Sandy Creek - Barnadown Road, near Old Stock Route Road, about 9.45am.
One of the two utes involved had rolled onto its roof.
Paramedics took a man in his 20s to Bendigo Hospital in a stable condition with neck and shoulder injuries.
A Mobile Intensive Care Ambulance treated a woman in her 20s for shock at the scene.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
Bendigo Acting Sergeant Anthony Johnson said the two utes were heading in a northerly direction along the road.
"At this stage it's unclear how the collision has happened," he said.
"It appears the front vehicle has either tried to conduct a right-hand turn or do a U-turn, and the vehicle coming behind has collided into them, causing the front vehicle to roll and end up on its roof."
Acting Sergeant Johnson believed the female patient was pregnant.
A section of Sandy Creek - Barnadown Road was closed as emergency services responded.
