The man accused of crashing a bus and causing the deaths of two women near Avoca has pleaded guilty to all charges.
The jury was discharged at the County Court in Ballarat on Monday morning after Lionel Calf, 71, announced he would plead guilty.
He faces eight charges - two of dangerous driving causing death, and six of dangerous driving causing serious injury.
The bus was returning to the Ballarat area from a bowls tournament in Mildura when the accident occurred, killing Creswick woman Carmel Mitchell, 71, and Beaufort woman Ethel Glenister, 87.
The plea hearing will take place in Ballarat on Wednesday, and Calf's bail was extended.
Crown prosecutor Andrew Moore said the prosecution will submit that a community corrections order falls within range of appropriate sentences, and the case has "many unusual aspects to it".
The trial began on March 11.
