Fire fighters say the occupants of a car travelling on State Highway 2 near Waihi had "a lucky escape" after colliding with a truck this afternoon.

Fire northern communications shift manager Jaron Phillips said the accident happened shortly after 12.30pm.

‘‘I believe the car looks badly damaged but apparantly the occupants are all ok,’’ he said.

A St John Ambulance spokesperson confirmed only one person was treated for minor injuries at a local medical centre.

State Highway 2 remains open in both directions following the crash.
