TWO women had to be cut from their cars and airlifted to hospital after a serious collision between Holsworthy and Chilsworthy yesterday (Monday) morning.

The collision occurred a mile north of Chilsworthy on the Holsworthy to Bradworthy road involving a Mitsubishi Shogun and a Ford Fiesta at around 9.20am.

The Shogun overturned, causing the 62-year-old driver to suffer head injuries.

The driver of the Fiesta, which ended up in a ditch, suffered serious pelvic injuries.
