A car that collided with a truck and then hit a power pole is towed from Hardinge St on Wednesday.

An 83 year-old Deniliquin woman was lucky to have escaped with only a sore knee after her car collided with a truck on Wednesday.

The woman was driving a Toyota Camry west on George St and was attempting to turn left into Hardinge St about 12.35pm.

As she turned she collided with the front tyre and passenger side fuel tank of a Kenworth truck on the highway.

Her car ended up colliding with a power pole in front of Wired Entertainment.

An employee at the business said none of the staff saw the incident but heard the crash, and then went to offer assistance.

‘‘We thought a truck had blown a tyre or something,’’ the employee said.

‘‘I went out and spoke to the lady to see if she was okay. They took her to hospital (and) she seemed fine.’’

Police inquiries are continuing.
