A motorcyclist has died near Wodonga in the third fatal crash on Victorian roads in less than 24 hours.

Police say the motorcycle with a pillion passenger collided with the utility which was towing a trailer and travelling in the same direction at Leneva at about 2.30 pm (AEST) on Sunday.

Paramedics performed CPR on the 40-year-old male rider from Baranduda, but were unable to revive him.

His pillion passenger, a 12-year-old Baranduda girl, received serious injuries and has been airlifted to hospital.

The ute’s sole occupant, a male driver, was uninjured.

On Saturday, two women were killed within two hours in separate crashes on Victorian roads.

The first died after a head-on collision at Brucknell in Victoria’s southwest at about 3pm on Saturday.

The second woman died in the Geelong suburb of Leopold, when a utility lost control and struck her car at about 5pm.

Victoria’s road toll stands at 173 compared with 197 at the same time last year.
