Two people were injured when two cars collided in Gatton this morning.

A 17-year-old female passenger was taken to Toowoomba Hospital for "spinal precautions" and suffering arm pain after a two car crash in Gatton this morning. 

The incident happened at the intersection of William and Spencer streets about 9am.

An RACQ CareFlight helicopter landed at the Gatton Showgrounds but was later dispatched as it was not needed, with the patient transported by ambulance to hospital.

The 17-year-old P-plate male driver of the dark blue Hyundai was transported to Gatton Hospital with minor injuries while the driver of the second vehicle, a Toyota Landcruiser, was unharmed.

Police directed traffic as the incident was cleared.

Gatton Police Sergeant Tony Harm said the P-plate driver was to be issued with an infringement over the matter with investigations continuing.

Sgt Harm said the P-plate driver was turning into William Street and crossed the path of the oncoming Landcruiser travelling south-west on Spencer Street when the collision occurred.

 "The Spencer and William Street intersection is busy at that time of the morning and we urge motorists to be patient and take care when turning," Sgt Harm said.
