Two women and four children were lucky to escape uninjured after a head-on collision in Picton, a paramedic says.
St John Marlborough territory manager Murray Neal said the two cars collided in Waikawa Rd about 4pm on Wednesday.
A woman with three young children, from about 3 weeks to 6 years old, were in one car, while another woman and a child were in the other.
The cars were going at a "relatively slow" speed in a 50kmh zone, Neal said.
All the passengers were assessed by paramedics at the scene but no one required further medical assistance.
There was a reasonable amount of damage to both cars, Neal said.
Both families were lucky, he said.
"It shows the benefits of good seatbelts and baby seats," he said.
