A woman and a six-year-old child have been injured following a collision 10km south of Sofala on Thursday. 

Emergency services were called to the scene before 10am yesterday, where it was believed the 25-year old driver of the car had collided with the front of a prime mover on her way to Bathurst.

The driver and passenger were trapped in the vehicle for some time, before being airlifted from the scene to a nearby hospital.

The injuries sustained to the child are unknown, yet it is reported that the driver suffered several injuries to her legs, including fractures.

In a statement to 2MCE, Acting Inspector for Chifley Local Area Command Ben McFarlane, said it appeared the driver had lost control of her vehicle before colliding with the truck.
