Police are investigating whether a medical condition was behind an Endeavour Hills collision that flipped one car onto its roof.
Casey Highway Patrol and CFA crews were called to Power Road about 7.20pm on Monday 13 November.
Leading Senior Constable John Diamond said a Honda Odyssey station wagon was travelling south and allegedly crossed the dividing line.
Heading in the other direction was a black Volkswagen.
“The driver noticed the oncoming vehicle travelling towards her onto the wrong side of the road,” Ldg Sen Const Diamond said.
“She has sounded her horn to warn the driver and pretty much immediately took evasive action and steered to the left to avoid a collision.”
He said it appeared the Honda struck the Volkswagen’s rear driver’s side tyre, causing its driver to lose control.
The vehicle rolled over near Kennington Park Drive.
“We’re investigating whether there was a medical condition that caused the car to cross onto the other side of the road,” Ldg Sen Const Diamond said.
The driver received minor injuries and her male passenger was not injured.
An Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman said paramedics treated a man in his 70s at the scene for a minor chest injury and took him to Dandenong Hospital in a stable condition.
A CFA spokeswoman said eight trucks attended the scene.
It was originally reported to emergency services that there was a car on fire but crews quickly determined that was not the case.
