Shortly after 4pm on Monday, a blue Ford sedan allegedly travelled through the Barmah Road checkpoint and failed to stop for police.

The car, which police allege was travelling in excess of 100km/h, was not pursued for safety reasons.

About 5.30pm, police were called to Moama, following reports a blue Ford sedan had crashed into a tree.

Officers from Murray River Police District attended and commenced inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the crash.

The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, a 52-year-old woman, was freed from the vehicle by attending police and treated at the scene, before being flown to a hospital in Melbourne.

She sustained a broken leg and head injuries as a result of the crash and remains in hospital in a critical condition.

Inquiries are continuing and anyone with information is urged to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
