A MAN is lucky to be alive after the car he was driving crashed into a tree and caught fire in Colbinabbin last Tuesday night.
Emergency services were called at about 8.30pm to the corner of Bendigo-Murchison Rd and Kennedy Rd in Colbinabbin. It is believed the driver had a seizure. He was pulled from the vehicle before it caught fire.
The 30-year-old was taken to the Bendigo hospital but was released a short time later.
