A 70-year old Uki woman was trapped in the car and was airlifted to hospital by the Westpac Life Saver Rescue helicopter.

"There was just a big thump; didn't hear any brakes," he said.

The road was closed for about two hours with police, Murwillumbah Rural Fire Brigade, Tweed District Rescue and NSW Ambulance at the scene.
