A Warrnambool woman was not injured after colliding with a small truck, but her car was extensively damaged.

THE Princes Highway was closed at Banyan Street on Wednesday after a two-car collision.

The vehicles collided at 11.55am after a 90-year-old woman driving a Ford Festiva failed to give way to a small truck towing a trailer. 

The Warrnambool woman was not injured but her car was extensively damaged, according to Warrnambool police.

The woman was issued an infringement notice and will have her licence reviewed.

The southbound lane of Banyan Street was closed for about half an hour.

At 12.25pm a Narre Warren woman aged in her 70s was driving on High Street in Lismore when she lost control and drove through a residential brick fence.

She sustained a minor injury and was taken to Camperdown Hospital.

Police said the wet conditions and age of the driver may have been contribution factors and police would continue investigating the incident.
