One person has died in a horrific crash on South Western Highway near Brunswick overnight.

Police say a white Holden Commodore was being driven south on the highway when the driver lost control, crossing to the wrong side of the road and hitting several trees before the car rolled.

A front passenger – a man in his 20s – died at the scene, while the driver was taken to hospital and another passenger received minor injuries.

The other two occupants are also aged in their 20s.

The crash occurred about 11pm last night when the car was approaching Brunswick near a slight left hand curve in the road, police say.

South Western Highway remains closed between Marriott and Clifton roads this morning.

Major Crash officers are investigating and calling on any witnesses who may have seen the crash or the vehicle on the highway prior to the incident to contact them.
