It is believed that the driver of the sedan lost control of the vehicle on Wannon-Nigretta Road near the small community of Bochara and hit a tree.

Assistant Commissioner for Road Policing Glenn Weir said the car was “obviously travelling at extremely high speed”.

“It is a really traumatic and destructive scene there,” Mr Weir told reporters on Sunday.

“We’re just hoping that the 17-year-old passenger who’s currently in hospital in a life-threatening condition can pull through so we can get some more detail of what actually occurred.”

It is yet to identify the driver at the time or whether the occupants were wearing seatbelts.

Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews said authorities would determine the cause of the crash soon.

“Please just take a little bit longer to get there, but getting there is the really important thing,” he said.

“We don’t want families going through what those families are going through right now.”

There have been 130 deaths on Victoria’s roads to date this year, compared to 96 this time last year.
