A policeman has been killed in a motorcycle crash in the Yarra Ranges.

The off-duty constable was riding along the Warburton-Woods Point Road at Reefton with another man on Sunday.

Police believe the riders, on separate motorbikes, attempted to overtake a northbound car shortly after 12pm.

The first rider overtook safely, but witnesses told investigators the second rider clipped an oncoming car.

He lost control of his bike and was hit by the car he had just overtaken.

Emergency services called to the scene could not revive him.

The 36-year-old, believed to have recently graduated from the police academy, was based at the Moonee Ponds police station.

He was a father of two.

Major Collision Investigation Unit detectives, who probe fatal crashes involving police as a matter of course, are investigating.

It follows the death of another off-duty officer in a motorcycle crash back in October.

Senior Constable Kate McLeod, a Sale police officer, was hit by a car when she was riding a motorbike on the Princess Highway at Lindenow South.

A Bairnsdale man, 30-year-old Patrick Mattu, was charged with culpable driving and dangerous driving causing death.
