In the first incident, at approximately 4:10 p.m., two vehicles struck each other at the intersection of Douglas Street and Chatham Street, causing one vehicle to roll over onto its side.
According to VicPD, non-life-threatening injuries were sustained in the crash that did not require hospitalization. Both drivers were treated for their injuries on scene by emergency health services.
Police say that both drivers were wearing seatbelts and there is no indication that alcohol or drugs were involved in the collision.
The exact cause of the crash is still under investigation.
In the second collision, two people were sent to hospital following a three vehicle crash later in the day.
Just before 9:30 p.m., police were called to a three vehicle collision involving two cars and a truck at the corner of Hillside Avenue and Belmont Avenue.
According to VicPD, two people involved in the crash were sent to hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Since then, one person has been released from care while the other individual remains in hospital for treatment.
