UPDATE: A PREGNANT woman had to be cut from the mangled wreck of a car after a two-vehicle collision in Harristown this morning.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Service crews were called to the intersection of West St and Drayton Rd about 8.45am.

The female driver of one vehicle was trapped in the vehicle and firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to free the woman from the wreckage.

She was transported to Toowoomba Hospital.

The road was blocked for half-an-hour as emergency services first assessed the patients at the scene then cleared the road.

The road was re-opened about 9.15am.

Toowoomba police duty Sergeant Greg Wheeler said there had been a consistent number of crashes around the city recently.

"Many are due to driver inattention or not obeying the road rules," Sgt Wheeler said.

"Motorists need to be mindful that road rules are there to keep people safe, both themselves and others.

"They need to make sure they abide by the road rules and take the driving of motor vehicles seriously because there can be serious consequences."

Sgt Wheeler said a high number of traffic crashes were consistently reported from major Toowoomba intersections, especially the roundabout at Herries St and Anzac Ave.

"A lot of traffic flows through that area," he said.

"But there are other major hot spots, and most involve give-way signs, stop signs and traffic lights.

"The consequences are not only fines from police and a possible court appearance, but also consequences through insurance companies hitting (drivers') pockets."

EARLIER: Emergency services are at the scene of a serious two vehicle crash on the corner of West St and Drayton Rd.

The incident happened about 8.40am.

Police are on scene for traffic control.

Motorists are urged to avoid the area.
