About 3.35pm on Saturday, November 25 emergency services were called to the Mitchell Highway near the intersection of Favell Road at Lucknow after a Honda CRV travelling south and a Nissan Pulsar travelling north collided head-on.

The driver of the Nissan, a 19-year-old woman, was treated at the scene before being flown to Westmead Hospital, where she remains in an induced coma with serious injuries

The driver of the Honda, a 57-year-old woman, was taken to Orange hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and has since been released.

A crime scene was established and officers from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit commenced investigations.

Police have been told that a number of witnesses assisted both women following the crash, however, those witnesses have not yet spoken to police.
