A vehicle flipped on Princes Highway in Pakenham after a driver, heading city-bound, allegedly failed to stop at a red light on Thursday 21 November.

The two vehicles, a white Mitsubishi Triton ute and a white van, collided at the Cardinia Road intersection about 9.30am.

The driver of the van, a man in his 20s, has been interviewed by police and is expected to be charged in relation to the collision.

An occupant of the ute was taken to Dandenong Hospital with minor injuries.

Emergency services, including Officer Fire Brigade and Cardinia Highway Patrol, diverted traffic while the ute was pulled back onto its wheels and towed away.
