Four people were taken to Wangaratta for observation, after a two car crash at the intersection of Carraragarmungee Estate Road and Wangaratta-Eldorado Road on Monday morning.

Also on Monday, four people escaped injury in a two-car crash on the Wodonga – Yackandandah Road at Baranduda, and a lucky driver in Myrtleford walked away after their car rolled.

On Friday a 4WD slid off the edge into trees on the Hotham Road, and on Saturday, a 4WD failed to take a bend, and hit a dual cab ute.

Victoria Police's Operation Nexus was targeting drivers doing the wrong thing over the long weekend, and they picked up quite a few in the area.

On Saturday, a 26-year-old Wodonga man returned a positive drug-driving result, after he was clocked driving 164km/h in Wooragee. Police also picked up a speeding, unsupervised learner driver on the Hume near Albury.

And on Monday, a 54-year-old Rutherglen man lost his license for drink driving.

With school holidays continuing, local drivers are urged to take care on the roads.
