Paramedics attended a single-car accident on the Glenelg Highway in Lake Bolac last night.
The incident occurred just before 9pm.
A female in her 40's, the sole occupant of the car, suffered serious leg injuries and was air-lifted to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
SES also attended the scene.
Mid-west duty officer Peter Keppel said SES attended six incidents when trees had fallen over roads.
Mr Keppel is warning home owners to secure loose items outdoors.
"We had a number of trampolines causing damage yesterday, so it is very important to keep them secure," he said.
"We always have gazebos flying through the air, so make sure they are secured.
"During storm season it is also important to keep your gutters and downpipes cleaned.
"And during severe storms don't park your car underneath trees, and try to stay clear of them all together."
