Euroa crash victim confirmed

The victim of a fatal car accident at Euroa on Wednesday has been confirmed as a 27-year-old Wangaratta woman.

Euroa Police believe speed contributed to the crash on the southbound lane of the Hume Freeway.

The woman died after her vehicle swerved off the road, crashed into a tree and burst into flames at about 7pm.

Euroa Police leading Sen-Constable Natalie Jubb said they were investigating the cause of the crash.

“We believe high speeds may have been involved,” she said.

The crash caused a grass fire between the two Euroa exits, but it was quickly under control.
