PARAMEDICS treated three people at the scene of a multi-vehicle smash near Scarsdale yesterday.
Emergency services were called to Pitfield Road about five kilometres from Scarsdale just after midday after three vehicles, one towing a caravan, were involved in the crash.
Paramedics at the scene said three people suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
An air ambulance was called to the scene, but was cancelled once it was established the patients’ injuries were not severe.
One driver was seen walking around the scene with a cut to his head and blood on his face.
Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman Gabrielle Degenhardt said two men aged in their 60s were transported to the Ballarat Health Services Base Hospital. One had facial injuries and the other had chest injuries. They were both in a stable condition last night.
Police from Smythesdale and Ballarat Highway Patrol were investigating the crash.
Volunteer fire brigades from around the region attended the scene and helped provide traffic direction.
Pitfield Road was blocked in both directions as crews worked to clear the scene.
At least one vehicle needed to be towed away with substantial front-end damage, while the others also sustained varying degrees of damage.
The vehicle towing the caravan jackknifed and was positioned sideways across Pitfield Road.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
