Two men, including one believed to be 100-years-old, have been taken to Shoalhaven District Hospital in a stable condition following a truck and car crash on the Princes Highway at Tomerong, south of Nowra.
Five NSW Ambulance paramedic crews were called to the crash scene near the intersection of the highway and Turpentine Road just before midday.
A NSW Ambulance spokesperson said the cherry picker truck rolled as a result of the crash, with the 45-year-old driver trapped in the overturned truck for a short time.
It took more than 20 minutes for him to be freed and he was able to crawl from the truck's cabin with the assistance of paramedics.
He suffered a lower leg injury and was transported by ambulance to hospital.
The elderly man was the only person in his vehicle.
He had managed to free himself from the vehicle which suffered significant front end damage, particularly to the passenger's side.
He suffered a laceration to his forehead was also transported by ambulance to Shoalhaven Hospital.
Both are reported to be in a stable condition.
Two other cars also collided in a separate accident at the scene.
The three occupants of those cars suffered minor injuries but did not require transportation to hospital.

Southbound traffic was still able to travel past the crash scene, albeit at a much reduced rate.
