LATEST: A Simpson driver involved in a single vehicle accident near Port Campbell early Friday morning has been transported to Warrnambool Base Hospital for observation.

Warrnambool police Sergeant Callum McKinnon said police were notified about the accident at 3.20am on Friday.

"The 24-year-old man was driving a Nissan ute along Princetown Road, Simpson, near the intersection with Gallum Road, when he lost control on a corner and collided with trees," he said.

"The vehicle received substantial front-end damage. The driver was able to get out of the vehicle and knocked on the door of a nearby house for help."

Sergeant McKinnon said the occupants of the home contacted the driver's family and his brother came and transported the driver to the Timboon hospital before he was transferred to the Warrnambool Base Hospital for observation.

Warrnambool police also also received a report of a burglary early Friday morning at a Gateway Road home in Warrnambool.

Police were alerted at 2.40am after offenders broke into a garage and stole about a slab of beer. A window at a neighbouring vacant unit was also smashed.
