A young woman has been killed in a road crash near Narooma.

The 19-year-old woman was driving on the Princes Highway before 1pm on Saturday in a Toyota Corolla when it is believed she was involved in a head-on collision with a Land Cruiser.

The woman died on the scene and her 19-year-old male passenger was flown to Canberra Hospital in a critical but stable condition.

The Landcruiser driver, a 19-year-old man, was unharmed but his three teenage passengers were taken to Bega Hospital with minor injuries.

The Princes Highway was closed in both directions for several hours after the accident but has now reopened.

A brief will be prepared for the Coroner.

Police are investigating and are urging witnesses to come forward. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page.
