Mystery over early morning crash


POLICE are investigating whether a man was thrown from his ute after an early morning crash on Grubb Road.
Bellarine SES controller Dion Henderson said the man was sitting with a bystander when crews arrived at the scene at 3.30am, 29 May.
Mr Henderson said the bystander, who lived nearby, heard the man crying for help and spotted him several metres from the ute.
Bellarine Police said the man veered off the side off the road, hitting a tree, which snapped and fell onto the road.
SES crews removed the tree and cleared the mess, after checking on the man’s condition.
Paramedics took the man to Geelong Hospital with suspected internal injuries. The ute sustained extensive damage.
