A WOMAN was taken to hospital after her four-wheel drive vehicle collided with a truck south of Tiaro on Tuesday, only a day after 12 people were involved in a four-car crash on the north side of the town.

Police, fire and rescue officers and several ambulances attended Tuesday's incident about 19km south of Tiaro.

The woman was taken to Gympie Hospital in a stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

She was travelling south in the 4WD towing a trailer when her vehicle collided with a truck travelling in the same direction at about 2.40pm.

The truck driver was treated at the scene for his injuries.

The accident occurred about 25km south of the scene of Monday's four-car crash.

The 18-year-old driver of a Holden Commodore station wagon involved in the four-car crash is in Hervey Bay Hospital in a stable condition with an arm injury and multiple lacerations.

Reports from the scene suggest the wagon crossed into the wrong lane and hit a Triton ute carrying two adults and two children.

A 14-year-old female passenger has been discharged from the Hervey Bay Hospital after she and the driver of the wagon were airlifted from the crash scene by two AGL Action Rescue Helicopters.

An 18-year-old passenger in another vehicle was also discharged from Hervey Bay Hospital.

The crash blocked Bruce Hwy about 5km north of Tiaro for an hour on Monday afternoon, creating a 15km traffic jam that grid-locked thousands of travellers returning from Easter holidays.
