WITNESSES are being sought after two collisions in Parkdale and Mordialloc after 8.30pm, Friday 22 March.
Police were told a blue ford ute had been driving erratically and crashed into a pole on Station Street Mordialloc. The driver was taken to hospital in a critical condition.
The 21-year-old Chelsea Heights man struck the pole at around 8.50pm. It is alleged that 20 minutes earlier he had been driving dangerously on the Nepean Highway and collided with a grey Toyota.
The Toyota rolled and the driver of the ute allegedly fled. The driver of the Toyota, a 69-year-old woman from Mount Eliza, was taken to hospital for observation. Police are keen to speak to any witnesses or anyone who may have dash cam footage.
