AN ECHUCA man is in a serious condition after crashing into an irrigation channel at Kotta yesterday.
The 23-year-old was trapped in his car for about an hour after the single vehicle collision at 1.38pm on Echuca-Mitiamo Rd near Aird Rd.
‘‘He ran off the road ... suffering non-life threatening injuries and causing damage to the front end of the vehicle,’’ Sergeant Paul Nicoll of Campaspe Highway Patrol said.
‘‘The cause is still being investigated.’’
Echuca-Moama Search and Rescue spent about an hour freeing the man who was conscious but extensively trapped.
An air ambulance helicopter flew the man to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a serious condition with suspected pelvis and hip injuries.
Police and CFA crews also attended the accident.
