Men overboard in Moolap

A Newcomb man is expected to face court after the boat he was towing – containing three passengers – tipped in Moolap last night, Victoria Police say.

It is believed the three men had been standing in the boat as it was being towed by a Nissan Navara along Coppards Road about 9pm.

As the vehicle was turning into Glenburn Street, it allegedly hit the curb, causing the boat to tip off its trailer.

A 25-year-old Corio man, 28-year-old Belmont man and 24-year-old Newcomb man were ejected onto the roadside and taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the vehicle, a 22-year-old Newcomb man, returned a positive preliminary breath test at the scene.

He was arrested and is expected to be charged on summons with driving offences including conduct endangering life and drink driving.
