Fire fighters had to cut a woman from a vehicle after a crash between a car and a truck in Hawke's Bay.

The accident happened on the Hawke's Bay Expressway at 10.14am today, police said.

The car turned from Meeanee Quay in to the wrong lane on the expressway, countable Wayne Stewart said. 

It appears that the 60-year-old driver did not see the truck travelling north, he said. 

His daughter was taken by ambulance to Hawke's Bay Hopsital with moderate head injuries. 

The driver of the car and the truck were unhurt. The truck suffered minor damage while the car was written off, Mr Stewart said.
