Major Collision Investigation Unit detectives continue to investigate a fatal collision in Kangaroo Flat earlier this morning that claimed the life of a man.
The incident occurred on the Calder Highway just north of Cherry Tree Lane, on Saturday 30 May, about 2.55am.
Detectives believe the man was a passenger in a taxi just prior to the collision and had become involved in a dispute with the driver.
The 40-year-old man then got out of the taxi when he was struck by a Holden sedan travelling north.
The Kangaroo Flat man died at the scene.
The driver of the sedan, a 24-year-old Wendouree man, and the driver of the taxi, a 26-year-old Kangaroo Flat man, stopped a short distance from the scene and have assisted police with their enquiries.
Anyone with information about the collision is urged to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppers.com.au
