Police inspect the damage at the crash scene on Friday.

Two vehicles collided head-on at the corner of Hardinge and George Sts, Deniliquin shortly before 5pm on Friday.

One of the cars had to be towed from the scene and a passenger was treated for injuries to their neck, back and hip, according to police.

A 21 year-old Hay woman, who was driving a Holden Commodore, was travelling south on Hardinge St, while a 49 year-old Leeton woman, driving a Holden Barina, attempted to drive through the intersection when the collision occurred.

Police say the 49 year-old said she didn’t see the other vehicle.

The Barina had to be towed from the scene and the 49 year-old driver was charged with failing to give way.

Ambulance, Deniliquin Fire & Rescue and Deniliquin Council staff joined police at the scene.

Firefighter Martin Smith said his crew provided fire protection at the scene.

‘‘We had to use rescue equipment to open a car door for ambulance officers to treat a patient,’’ he said.

‘‘We also cleaned up a minor oil spill and assisted ambulance officers with the removal of patients from one vehicle.’’
