THREE teenagers have been hospitalised, with one flown to Melbourne, following a horror crash in Cobden in the early hours of this morning.
Police say the teenagers were traveling east along Shenfields Lane Cobden when the Holden commodore wagon they were traveling in collided with a tree and rolled around 1.30am Saturday morning.
There were four occupants in the car - three were conveyed to hospital with serious injuries.
One teenage male was flown to The Alfred Hosptial in Melbourne by air ambulance with back and leg pain in a stable condition.
Another male was taken to the University Hospital Geelong by road ambulance in a stable condition with fractures to his arm while a teenage female was taken to South West Healthcare in Warrnambool also in a stable condition.
Warrnambool police Acting Sergeant Stuart Revell said speed was likely a factor.
"The vehicle came to a crest most likely at high speed and has lost control causing it to collide with a tree and then the vehicle rolled," he said.
"Extensive damage was caused to the vehicle.
"We believe it was speed-related, it happened near a high crest so driving to the conditions of the road are an issue, it wasn't an alcohol issue."
