Man trapped in car after Manawatu crash

A man was trapped inside a car after a head-on collision outside Palmerston North this afternoon.

The crash occurred shortly before 4.15pm at the junction of State Highway 3 and Stewart Rd between Palmerston North and Sanson, police said.

"It was reported as a head-on collision with one person trapped," said a police central communications spokeswoman.

Fire Service and ambulance personnel were at the scene and attempting to free the man from a mangled white hatchback.

He was conscious and talking to rescuers but the extent of his injuries were unknown.

The hatchback and another vehicle collided head-on, police at the scene said.

The female driver of the other vehicle walked away from the crash.

One lane of the road was blocked but no diversions are in place.
