A car has rolled after a collision with an unregistered vehicle at Dee Why.

Just before 1.00pm this afternoon (Friday, 05 July), emergency services responded to a report of a two-car collision, with one car rolled onto its roof (main image) at Prescott Avenue, Dee Why, near Palya Place.

The head-on collision occurred on a traffic calming island between a blue 1999 Toyota RAV4 that was heading south, and a silver 2010 Toyota Hilux utility that was heading north (images below).

The two vehicles have had an offset frontal impact on the driver side, with the RAV4, which appears to have a modified and raised suspension, losing balance and rolling onto its roof.

Officers from Northern Beaches Police Area Command and Traffic and Highway Patrol Command were first on scene, assisting the 67-year-old male driver and sole occupant from the overturned RAV4.

The man was taken to a NSW Ambulance that had also arrived on scene, and was assessed for minor injuries, before being taken to Northern Beaches Hospital in a stable condition.

Firefighters from Dee Why Station cleared debris from the roadway and neutralised a small fluid spill with absorbent material before departing.

The occupants of the Toyota Hilux ute, a man and woman in their 30s, did not appear to be injured and declined ambulance assessment. The registration of their vehicle (image above) expired just under a week ago, leaving them talking with police to explain the situation.

Police remained on scene until both vehicles were towed.
