Police were called to the crash on McLaren Falls Road at 8.40am.
A police spokesperson says one person appears to have sustained injury.
“It’s not clear from our information how serious this might be.”
A reporter at the scene says St John Paramedics are at the scene treating one person who has a laceration to their head.
“One of the vehicles has sustained damage to the front and has buckled an axle. The other vehicle looks to be written-off.”
Police are speaking with witnesses at the scene.
