"It's terrible. I've lived here for 25 years. We are very much a quiet little community particularly at our end of the street," one neighbour told The Age.

Police believe the man and the woman were known to each other.

"The female was deceased when emergency services arrived," a police spokeswoman told The Age. "The male died at the scene a short time later.

"A child that was also believed to have been in the vehicle was not physically injured."

Police said the exact cause of death is yet to be determined and police are not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident.

The circumstances around the death remain under investigation.
