THREE people have been charged with manslaughter after two men died in a Victorian car crash.

Police have said they heard reports of three cars driving erratically on the Calder Highway south of Wedderburn before two cars collided and ran off the road at Glenalbyn, near Bendigo, on January 4.

A 67-year-old Violet Town man, a 35-year-old Violet Town woman and a 44-year-old Wedderburn man have all been charged with manslaughter, culpable driving, dangerous driving causing death and other offences.

A 55-year-old Cobram man and a 29-year-old Wedderburn man died in the collision.
