A MELBOURNE woman was airlifted to the Alfred Hospital with internal injuries after an accident on the outskirts of Camperdown last night.
Camperdown police Constable Lana Roberts said the two-car collision happened on the Princes Highway just over the crest of the hill on the eastern side of the town at 9.45pm.
The 28-year-old Melbourne woman was driving a Hyundai east on the Princes Highway when she was involved in a collision with a Camperdown woman heading west driving a Holden Commodore.
It is believed one vehicle crossed onto the wrong side of the road, but police investigations into the cause of the accident are continuing.
The Melbourne woman suffered internal injuries and the roof of her vehicle was cut off to aid her extraction from the car.
She was in the car about two hours before being moved and then airlifted to Melbourne.
This morning the woman was listed as being in a serious but stable condition in hospital.
The Camperdown woman suffered minor injuries, including bruising, and was taken to the Camperdown hospital.
Both vehicles have been described as write-offs.
Police, ambulance, Country Fire Authority and State Emergency Service volunteers attended the accident scene.
The Princes Highway was blocked for about two and a half hours forcing traffic to be diverted.
