EIGHT people have been involved in a high-impact, three-vehicle smash along Goodwood Rd.

The other six patients have been assessed but it appears only one of these patients will require to be taken to hospital with an arm injury.

Two vehicles, travelling in opposite directions, collided at speeds of up to 100kmh each.

A third vehicle was also involved.

One of the three vehicles was occupied by a family of six.

The remaining five people are in shock but have escaped relatively unharmed.

"It was a significant sideswipe rather than a head-on crash but there is significant damage to all vehicles," Mr Kelly said.

"While we have some critical and serious injuries it's a wonder no-one was killed instantly."

The crash happened near the Woodgate turn-off about 3.45pm.
