A woman, man and one-year-old child have escaped serious injury after their car and a fuel truck were involved in a crash about midday.
Their small hatchback was written-off in the smash, which left the front-seat passenger trapped while the Tasmania Fire Service used jaws of life to remove the front and back doors from the car.

The one-year-old was in a baby capsule in the back seat and was left relatively unscathed.
All occupants of the hatchback were taken to the Launceston General Hospital for observations, and the adults sustained minor injuries.
Tasmania Police Sergeant Gavin Chugg said the fact everyone escaped serious injury was a "very lucky day for all involved".
Sergeant Chugg reiterated the importance of the fatal five and said the incident could have been much worse
The road was cleared about 1.40pm and investigations continued into how it occurred.
"While the cause of the crash is still being investigated drivers should be mindful that inattention and distraction are one of the leading causes of fatal and serious crashes on roads in Tasmania," Sergeant Chugg said.
