THREE children were among six people injured in a horror two-vehicle crash on Saturday night.

A Queensland Police spokesman said a Holden Commodore travelling towards Maryborough crossed Maryborough-Hervey Bay Rd at Nikenbah, where it collided with a Mitsubishi Pajero.

Police and ambulance services were called about 9.50pm.

The Pajero's five occupants sustained only minor injuries, while the driver of the Commodore was trapped in his vehicle.
