A Melbourne woman was taken to Echuca hospital for observation after a jet ski accident on the Murray River in Moama on Friday.

Moama police Constable Leigh Oakley said the woman collided with another jet ski, driven by a Melbourne man, about 10am near Merool on Murray resort.

Constable Oakley said the woman, who was complaining of neck pain, was taken to Echuca hospital, but was released soon after.

‘‘The matter has been referred to NSW Maritime who will issue an infringement notice to the male,’’ he said.

Traffic on the Echuca-Moama bridge was held up for about 10 minutes after a nose to tail accident about lunchtime Saturday.

Constable Oakley said three cars had rear-ended each other, but no-one was injured.

He said police did not need to intervene as the drivers exchanged details and were able to drive away.
