Update: A TRUCK and a car have collided on the corner of Cunningham and Patrick sts yesterday morning.

Around 9.45am a man driving a Scania truck was turning left from Cunningham St onto Patrick St from the right lane so he would have enough room to make the turn.

When the lights went green a white Ford Sedan in the left lane also tried to turn left, resulting in the truck's petrol tank colliding with the driver's door of the Ford.

The truck driver couldn't see the Ford when he went to turn because it was in his blind spot.

The 78-year-old female driver of the Ford was trapped in the car for a short period and had to be extricated from the vehicle by emergency services.

The woman was taken to hospital by the ambulance for examination.

Police are still investigating the incident and are calling on witnesses to come forward.
