Police have charged a man for allegedly speeding through a fatal collision scene while a police road block was set-up last weekend.
On Friday, September 4, Daylesford Police executed a search warrant at a home in Wendouree West in relation to an incident which occurred on the Midland Highway on Saturday, August 29.
As a result, they took a 24-year-old man and a 29-year-old man into police custody.
Police allege the 24-year-old drove through a collision scene while a police road block was in place.
The road block was established to prevent drivers from travelling through the area while police undertook an investigation at the scene, in which a cyclist in his 50s was killed.
Acting Sergeant Ryan Newman, of Daylesford Police, said the incident caused police at the scene to take evasive action to avoid being hit while they were searching for evidence on the roadway.
The 24-year-old male was charged with reckless conduct endangering serious injury. He has been remanded in custody and will appear at the Ballarat Magistrates' Court at a later date.
The 29-year-old male was arrested in relation to a separate incident. He was released pending summons.
