A man in his 20s has been taken to hospital following a two-car crash on a busy road in Clyde on Friday 27 March.

Emergency services were called to the scene at Ballarto Road and Clyde Five Ways Road about 4pm where two vehicles were extensively damaged.

Cardinia Highway Patrol said it’s believed a blue Ford Falcon ute driven by a man in his 20s of Clyde North and a Nissan dual cab towing a trailer crashed after the Ford allegedly failed to give way on Clyde Five Ways Road.

Ambulance Victoria said paramedics were called to the scene where a man in his 20s was taken to Dandenong Hospital in a stable condition with minor injuries.

The incident resulted in debris being scattered across the road.

Clyde CFA volunteer firefighters also attended and assisted with clearing oil from the road and diverting traffic in both directions until the scene was deemed safe after an hour.

The occupants of the Nissan – a driver in their 50s of Berwick and a passenger in their 20s – were believed to be unharmed.

Police are investigating and say no charges have been laid at this stage.
