Two taken to hospital after two-car smash

A MAN and woman had to be treated by paramedics following a two-car crash at the intersection of Crofton and Barolin Sts. 

Queensland Ambulance Service officer-in-charge Cameron Anderson said paramedics initially treated five people but three young women were released at the scene.

A 80-year-old man and a 75-year-old woman were treated for cuts and bruises and transported to hospital.

Mr Anderson said luckily no one was more seriously injured.

"This had the potential to be very serious. It was just by good luck that it wasn't," he said.

"These sorts of crashes can be avoided by people taking more care and paying attention while driving - which is the message we want to ram home.

"The impact, as you can see from the cars, was more head-on. Luckily it didn't impacted the front passenger side. The injuries could have been very serious."

The crash happened around 9am Tuesday. 

The scene has been made safe with both cars towed from the intersection.
