A MAN has died after his car collided with a power pole in Warragul just before 7pm yesterday evening.

A police spokesperson said investigators believed the 19-year-old Warragul man was driving west on Queen Street when he lost control of the vehicle while taking a corner and hit the pole.


The man died before he could be airlifted to hospital.

There were no passengers in the car at the time of the crash.

The spokesperson said a collision in Drouin earlier in the evening was also under investigation.

The incident brings the state’s road toll for 2014 to 111, eight higher than the same time last year.


Earlier this year police commenced a number of state-wide operations aimed at reducing the road toll and road trauma as part of the Road to Zero campaign.
