A pedestrian and driver have been taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a dramatic crash in the Yates Street parkade Tuesday.

The driver suffered a medical event while entering the parkade around noon, said VicPD.

The car and driver hit a pedestrian, three cement parking posts, another vehicle and a motorcycle before coming to a rest on top of barriers that were toppled by the force of the car.

The driver, reportedly from out of town, may have entered the parkade from the wrong direction.

The vehicle that crashed was towed and the driver and the pedestrian were taken to hospital by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigation is ongoing.
