Senior Constable Tony McLachlan of Camperdown Police said it appeared the Toyota had failed to give way at the busy intersection.

“The occupant of the Ford was cautioned to remain in the vehicle after she said she had a sore hip and neck,” he said.

“The driver of the Toyota was able to vacate her vehicle, but has sustained a sore chest in the incident.”

Camperdown police, SES, CFA and ambulance crews attended the scene.

SES members used the jaws-of-life to remove doors from the Ford to allow for easier access to the injured occupant.

Ambulance crews attended to both drivers and CFA volunteers had prepared to ‘wash down’ the scene.

Snr Const McLachlan said the driver of the Toyota would likely receive a penalty notice for failing to give way at the intersection.
