The car was travelling at about 100km/h when the incident occurred.

Lake Narracan boat fire

A woman and preschool-aged child were taken to hospital yesterday after a boat they were travelling on caught fire at Lake Narracan.

A CFA spokesman said the blaze broke out about 10.50am near the caravan park.

Three tankers attended the incident from the foreshore and extinguished the blaze a short time later.

While the cause is yet to be determined, an Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman said the boy suffered facial burns and the woman, in her 20s, had burns to her arms and legs.

Both were taken to Latrobe Regional Hospital in a stable condition.
