Young man dead after falling from ute tray in Victoria

A young man has died after apparently falling from a ute tray in West Gippsland, Victoria, overnight.

Police were told the ute was being driven along Silbys Road, Darnum, at about 10.15pm yesterday.

It's believed four males and a female, aged in their late teens to early 20s, were aboard.

Detectives are examining the possibility that one youth may have been on the bonnet of the ute, two in the tray, and another two in the cabin.

Police did not outline in what circumstances it's believed the young man fell off the tray, as it is still early in the investigation.

He was airlifted to hospital, but has since died.

Anybody who witnessed the incident or who has dashcam footage is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
