Emergency service workers are concerned that drivers aren't following repeated road safety messages after two serious collisions in as many days.
Two vehicles collided after a driver failed to give way at the intersection of Princes Highway and Camperdown-Darlington Road shortly after 3pm on Sunday.
Five occupants from both vehicles were conveyed to Warrnambool Base Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, including a man and woman aged in their 80s, a man in his 60s, a man in his 20s and a primary-school aged boy.
The boy suffered no obvious injuries and was taken to hospital for observations.
Camperdown SES unit controller Michael Carman said one of the adult males was trapped inside a vehicle for about 20 minutes.
"We worked with Ambulance Victoria to extricate the person," he said.
Police from Terang, Camperdown and Mortlake attended, as well as Bookaar rural fire brigade, and Boorcan and Camperdown fire brigade.
Mr Carman said he'd attended two road rescues in recent weeks, with a man aged in his 60s suffering non-life-threatening injuries after his truck rolled near Lismore in mid-November.
He said he hoped motorists would follow repeated road safety messages this festive season.
"I imagine there'll now be more cars on the roads with everything opening back up (after coronavirus lockdowns)," he said.
He urged motorists to "take care, take necessary breaks and avoid using their mobile phone while driving".
