Three people suffered minor injuries in a collision between a car and a truck on the Oxley Highway at Gunnedah yesterday morning.

About 8.45am, emergency services were called to the scene of the crash at the intersection of the Oxley Highway and Bennet Rd.

Initial reports suggested a person was trapped in one of the vehicles, but all three people involved were able to free themselves.

The truck was transporting a small house, which resulted in debris scattered across the road.

Paramedics treated three people for minor injuries and one was taken to Gunnedah hospital.

The highway was closed for about an hour.

In other news, firefighters and three aircraft are expected to continue battling a bushfire today which threatened three properties near Ashford yesterday. The fire on the Emmaville Rd was reported to have begun on private property late Wednesday evening and has since burnt out 452 hectares.
