Four separate crashes on Victoria's roads in 24 hours have left one man dead and six others seriously injured.

In one of the worst crashes, four people were seriously injured after a car smashed into a pole and oncoming traffic in Melbourne's outer east on Friday night.

A 39-year-old man lost control of his car, mounted a median strip and smashed into an oncoming vehicle with three people inside, police say.

The 30-year-old female driver that was hit was helped by alarmed residents who rushed to the scene after hearing the crash.

"The lady driver was crushed and pinned in, the roof was on top of her head," resident Jarrod Visser told the Nine Network.

The driver of the out-of-control car was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

On Saturday, a man in his 60s died after his car veered off the road and struck a tree in Victoria's east.

Police are still investigating the exact cause of the crash in Vasey.

In another crash, a female driver in her 30s was T-boned by a police vehicle at Corio in Geelong's north.

Police say the woman was attempting a U-turn and turned into the path of the police car.

She was taken to hospital with serious injuries on Saturday, while a police officer suffered minor injuries.

Also on Saturday, an elderly man was taken to hospital with serious injuries after being hit by a car while crossing an intersection in Coburg North.

Victoria's road toll currently sits at 185, 27 more than the 2015 toll at the same stage of the year.
