A WOMAN was injured and her dog killed in a head-on crash at Hatton Vale today.

Laidley Police Senior Sergeant Jim McDonald said a woman, 44, was driving a blue Nissan Tiida which crossed onto the wrong side of Hannant Rd and collided with a Ford Falcon at 10.10am.

Firefighters used hydraulic cutting gear to remove a door of the Tiida as the woman was trapped in the driver's seat.

She sustained a chest injury and was taken to the Ipswich Hospital.

The driver of the Falcon, a 49-year-old man, sustained minor injuries. Police are investigating what caused the Tiida to cross onto the wrong side of the road.
