Investigators believe a Ford Territory was speeding when it went through a red light about 11.50pm before hitting Rankin who was travelling through the intersection in a Holden Commodore.

The driver of the Territory, a 30-year-old Corio man, died at the scene on the corner of the Princes Highway and St Georges Road. The passenger, a 37-year-old Corio man, survived the crash with non-life threatening injuries.

A police spokeswoman on Tuesday declined to say what Rankin had been wanted for.
