A KIRKSTALL couple was taken to hospital on Thursday night after a head-on two-car collision on Wollaston Road.

Police said the pair of 29-year-olds' Commodore station wagon veered onto the wrong side of road and collided with a Hyundai Santa Fe wagon about 9pm.

An Ambulance Victoria spokesman said paramedics received the call shortly after 9pm and the 69-year-old Cavendish man driving the Hyundai was not injured.

The 29-year-old man was treated for anxiety and fitted with a spinal column as a precaution before being taken to Warrnambool Base Hospital for observation, he said.

The 29-year-old woman suffered soreness from the seatbelt and some bruising. She was also taken to the Warrnambool Base Hospital for assessment.

The spokesman said the injuries did not appear serious.

"Both of the injured parties were out of the car and walking around when the paramedics arrived," he said.

Both cars were towed from the scene and the road was closed for a short time until police could direct traffic.

Police will investigate the cause of the accident.
