A stretch of the road had to be shut.

"Ambulance, fire and police are in attendance.

"One elderly female driver was trapped in one of the vehicles; she has sustained serious head and chest injuries.

"The road will be closed for some time. Closure on from Trerulefoot down to Hessenford on the A387. Closure on at St Germans."

A spokesperson from Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "One appliance from Liskeard with six firefighters, one appliance from Saltash with five firefighters and a Rescue Tender from Bodmin with six firefighters were mobilised to a two vehicle road traffic collision just off of the Trerulefoot round about on the A374.
