Jamieson said the daughter was trapped in her vehicle for nearly an hour and a half after the collision.

Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to free her, he said.

"She was rushed to a nearby hospital in a serious but stable condition," he said.

Both drivers of the trucks sustained minor injuries, he added.
