A COLAC man died after he was hit by a ute on Saturday night, police said.
The man, aged in his early 30s, was walking along the Princes Highway near Winchelsea at 11.50pm when the accident happened.
Police said the man — who was headed west near Deans Marsh Road, about five kilometres from Winchelsea — was struck by a Holden ute also travelling west.
The man died at the scene, police said.
The driver of the ute, a Timboon man, was not injured.
Police will prepare a report for the coroner.
The death takes the state’s road toll to 229, compared to 218 last year.
In a separate incident, a Warrnambool man, 53, was flown by air ambulance to The Alfred hospital in Melbourne after a two-car crash on the Hopkins Highway on Saturday.
The man was unconscious when he was taken to Melbourne.
Police later said he was in a stable condition.
The man was travelling north near the Mortlake Road roundabout when his green Commodore and a blue Hyundai, which was headed in the opposite direction, collided about 5.52pm.
A passenger in the Hyundai received minor injuries.
Meanwhile, two French tourists were injured when they swerved to avoid a kangaroo and crashed into a tree yesterday.
The pair were taken to Warrnambool Base Hospital with minor injuries after the accident on the Port Campbell-Cobden Road at 9.30am.
Police said the tourists were travelling in a north-westerly direction when their maroon station wagon hit a tree on the other side of the road near the Jancourt turn-off.
