UPDATE 4pm: A 45-year-old woman trapped in a Holden Commodore was stabilised by paramedics before being freed from her car by Batemans Bay Fire and Rescue and transported to Batemans Bay hospital in a critical condition.
A Fire and Rescue spokesman said crew had to perform a full side removal on the car to free the woman.
“Paramedics stabilised her – she had critical injuries – before we could get her out,” he said.
He said the two men in the other vehicle involved, a High Ace van were ok.
“We just had rain after a longish, dry spell,” he said.
“Dirt, dust accumulates on the road, which becomes slippery after rain. People really must drive to the conditions.”
