A female was taken to Palmerston North Hospital in a serious condition this morning after a collision between a truck and a car.

The collision between a truck and a Mitsubishi station wagon occurred about 3.50am on Rangitikei Line - State Highway 3 - in Newbury, Inspector Brett Calkin, of Palmerston North, said.

The road was partially blocked for about an hour, he said.

A central fire communications spokesman said she had been trapped in her vehicle.

''They extricated her OK,'' he said.

Police could not confirm age of the injured female or if anyone else was injured in the crash.
