The other car was carrying two adults who were taken to hospital for observation. Police are still investigating the cause with the scene currently being measured up and the western Highway will remain closed for another three to four hours.
The Warrayatkin road incident involved a single vehicle which went off the road into a tree.
An adult male and two children in the vehicle were uninjured - with Superintendent Paul Margetts saying "they were very lucky"..again police don't know the cause and are looking into how the tree came to rest where it has.
