The Sturt Highway has been closed in both directions, following a car crash near Gumly.
Two children and a 34-year-old woman were injured when the car and four-wheel-drive collided at the Bakers Lane intersections.
According to Wagga’s NSW Ambulance station officer Darren Rudd, one car had reportedly hit another from behind, thrusting it into the path of oncoming traffic on the Sturt Highway.
Five ambulance crews rushed to the scene at about 4.45pm, after calls were made to emergency services.
It was reported the four-wheel-drive Toyota Prado had rolled several times.
Mr Rudd said it was extremely lucky no one had been seriously hurt or killed.
He said the four occupants in the vehicle were transported to hospital, three with non-life-threatening injuries.
A three-year-old girl was treated for a bleeding nose, a four-year-old boy received whiplash and the 34-year-old had copped facial injuries. Another young boy appeared to have emerged from the wreckage unscathed.
Emergency services are still on the scene at Gumly and drivers have been advised to expect delays.
