Two people have been injured after a car crashed and landed on its roof near Kangaroo Valley on Saturday morning.
Emergency services were called to the single-vehicle accident on Moss Vale Road, between Kangaroo Valley and Cambewarra, just before 9am.
The car was found on its roof, leaking fuel onto the road, after reportedly crashing at “moderate speed”.
The passenger side of the vehicle is understood to have taken the brunt of the impact.
A NSW Ambulance spokesman said two ambulance crews responded to the crash, with paramedics treating two people – a man and a woman – at the scene.
The spokesman said the male driver of the car – whose age was unknown – was bleeding from the head.
The passenger – a 19-year-old woman – was found outside the car, on the road, also bleeding from a gash to her head, he said.
She also sustained an injury to her left knee.
One person was taken to Shoalhaven Hospital. However, the spokesman was unable to confirm which of the two patients were transported. It is understood their injuries are not serious.
The accident has closed Moss Vale Road in both directions between Kangaroo Valley Road and Cambewarra Lookout Road.
Traffic is being diverted via Kangaroo Valley Road, Tourist Road and Cambewarra Lookout Road.
This diversion adds about 20 minutes of travel time.
