A young German was among those killed in a car smash in Australia that police say was drink-related.

The 21-year-old was one of three young tourists to die in the crash, which happened on Sunday (August 27) in the state of Victoria.

Another man, a 19-year-old from Britain, is in hospital with life-threatening injuries. A fifth tourist, from Germany, received less injuries.

Police said all five had been working at a local winery and had been drinking at a nearby hotel before the crash.

Local media report the driver lost control on a bend, causing the car to flip over and smash into a tree.
