THE jaws of life were needed to cut three people out of a car after it was t-boned by a truck on Tin Can Bay Rd this afternoon.

Police, fire and ambulance services responded to the call on the section of the road just before the Goomboorian service station after 1pm.

The car was hit with such force by the vehicle, it spun around and off the road - colliding with a nearby parked four-wheel-drive in a garage.

The right-hand-side of the vehicle has effectively been crumpled, with the truck sustaining a shattered windshield and relatively minor damage to it's front.

Miraculously, all three people received only minor injuries in the crash - with some bruising and abrasions reported by ambulance media.

This stretch of road has become a hotspot for collisions, with a number of high-speed crashes having occurred in the same area.

 

Fire crews examine the vehicle.
