The 17-year-old girl stepped off the kerb and was struck by the Frankston City Council rubbish truck at the intersection of Cranbourne-Frankston Road and Long Street in Langwarrin about 8.10am on Tuesday.

Paramedics treated the girl at the scene before she was flown by air ambulance to Royal Melbourne Hospital. She remained in a serious condition at 1pm.

A man, known only as Will, saw the collision and described the distressing scene.

“I just saw her rolling on the ground there, so unfortunately not a good scene,” he told radio station 3AW.

The 54-year-old Frankston truck driver is assisting police with their inquiries.

The girl was the second pedestrian to be seriously injured on Melbourne roads on Tuesday.

A man was hit by a car on the corner of La Trobe and William streets in the CBD about 5.30am.

The man, aged in his 30s, suffered serious head and leg injuries and was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a serious condition.

A further five pedestrians have been killed in Victoria in the past week.

The cyclist – a 25-year-old Ormond man – was taken to The Alfred hospital, but died a short time later.
