Man charged over double fatal Vic crash

A man has been charged over a crash that killed two people last year as police investigate a truck collision that left a cyclist dead in country Victoria.

A Victorian man has been charged over a crash that killed a girl and her mother.

The eight-year-old girl died at the scene of the head-on crash with another car at Rosedale on November 22 last year.

The 45-year-old woman, from nearby Sale in the state's east, died later.

A 20-year-old man from Denison, also near Sale, was charged on Friday with two counts of culpable driving, two counts of negligently causing serious injury and other traffic offences.

He has been bailed to appear at the Sale Magistrates Court on Monday.

Earlier on Friday, a cyclist died after being hit from behind by a truck at Colac in western Victoria.

The truck driver is assisting police.

Police have asked for witnesses to the crash to come forward.

Victoria's road toll is 66, seven more than at the same time last year.
