The crash comes less than three days after a fatal car accident in the same suburb which claimed the lives of three people.

The head-on collision on Palmers Road, Point Cook left one 35-year-old woman initially fighting for life but is now in a stable condition with serious injuries. 

One car flipped and another caught fire on Christmas Eve, increasing the road toll this holiday season to 12 since December 15.
