Shepparton police are urging people to drive to the conditions after several collisions on a rainy Saturday caused injuries and totalled vehicles.

Investigations are continuing into a three-car collision on Mason St, Shepparton, about 4pm Saturday, which saw two male drivers treated and taken to Goulburn Valley Health.

The crash was caused when a vehicle travelling east on Mason St collided with another vehicle performing a u-turn. As a result of the crash an unoccupied parked car was also damaged.

Three vehicles had to be towed from the scene.

Shepparton highway patrol Senior Constable Neil Johnson said it was a reminder for drivers to adapt to wet weather conditions.

A probationary licence driver was lucky to escape with minor injuries when his vehicle rolled onto its roof after he lost control, hitting a gutter, while turning at the corner of Batman Ave and Lawson St, Shepparton, about 4pm.

Initially the driver was trapped, but with help from community members who saw the incident, he was able to exit the vehicle.

The community members then quickly lifted the four-wheel-drive the right way up.

Shepparton Search and Rescue, CFA, police and Ambulance Victoria attended the scene.

First Constable Samuel Harper said it appeared wet roads could have been a factor and said it was important to slow down in wet conditions as you can lose control of your vehicle.

The vehicle had to be towed from the scene.

Investigations are continuing into the incident.
