Two ACT women died in a head-on collision near Bendigo yesterday afternoon.
Victorian Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the double fatality in Avonmore, and said yesterday that it appeared two cars, travelling in opposite directions, collided on the Midland Highway about 150m north of Lanmore Road about 1.15pm after one vehicle veered onto the wrong side of the road.
The Bendigo Advertiser reports that a 61-year-old and 48-year-old died at the scene. The women had reportedly been travelling home when their Nissan Pulsar collided with a silver Holden.
Police said neither vehicle was travelling over the speed limit so fatigue or distraction were the likely cause of the accident.
