He said although it was raining at the time and road the road was slippery, wet weather conditions were not a factor.

The officer said the woman, from Manly, was driving a red 2003 Peugeot 307 hatchback which hit into the side of a 2014 Toyota Corolla sedan driven by a 41-year-old female.

Ambulance officers were called to the crash but no injuries were reported.

Police said both cars were towed from the scene.
