A TWO-vehicle accident, which left two woman in hospital with suspected neck and leg injuries, caused major traffic delays in Coffs Harbour last night.

Trucks banked up for kilometres as State Emergency Service volunteers cut the woman free from her hatchback.

A car crossed onto the opposite side of the Pacific Highway and collided head-on which another vehicle just past the Combine St intersection just before 6pm.

An ambulance spokeswoman said two women were hospitalised after they were treated at the scene.

The accident saw smaller vehicles diverted around the scene via Thompson's Rd, but due to weight restrictions heavy vehicles queued either side of the crash scene for around 40 minutes.

Emergency services also responded to two accidents near Bellingen.

The first happened at 5.51pm and involved two cars on the Pacific Highway near Bellingen Rd.

A 57-year-old female suffered chest injuries, while a 79-year-old was hospitalised with spinal injuries.

The second crash happened on the Waterfall Way near Bellingen around 9pm.

A woman, in her mid 20s, reportedly lost control of her vehicle, which left the roadway and crashed into a pole.

She was treated at the scene and the vehicle was towed.
