Colac police are appealing for information about a single-vehicle crash at Forrest.
Colac Highway Patrol Acting Sergeant Jamie Kahle said police were investigating speed as a factor in Sunday’s crash and the possibility of racing.
A man was travelling south on the Birregurra-Forrest Road when he lost control of his vehicle near the Colac-Forrest Road intersection at Forrest and crashed into a tree.
The man was driving a white Renault Megane, which had red detailing.
The crash occurred on a section of road which has a speed limit of 80 kilometres per hour.
An air ambulance flew the man to the Royal Melbourne Hospital. The crash closed the Birregurra-Forrest Road for about seven hours.
