POLICE say a "lapse of concentration" is to blame for a crash that hospitalised two elderly people in Camperdown on Saturday.
Leading senior constable Adam Johnston, of Camperdown police, said a Toyota hatchback and a Mazda hatchback collided after one vehicle failed to give way on the corner of Walls Street and Manifold Street around 9.30am.
He said paramedics took a 80-year-old Camperdown woman and a 77-year old Ballarat man to Camperdown Hospital with minor injuries.
"It was just a lapse of concentration, we can appeal to drivers to concentrate," leading senior constable Johnston said.
"Police urge motorists to drive safely and take heed of traffic signs."
He said police were still investigating whether charges would be laid.
