POLICE say they are still investigating the circumstances of an accident in Navarre which claimed the lives of four women on May 5. 

The four crash victims, Dianne Barr, from Heywood, Tess Ely and Elaine Middleton, from Hamilton, and Claudia Jackson from Portland were returning home from a day of dancing at St Arnaud when the car they were travelling in collided with another at the intersection of Bains Road and Ararat-St Arnaud Road about 6pm.

The other vehicle involved was being driven by a 64-year-old woman from Stawell who suffered minor injuries but was released from hospital a few days later.

A police spokesperson said the investigation was ongoing and at this stage there had been no charges laid.

The spokesperson said police would not give a timeframe on how long the investigation could take.
