A teenager has been killed and another is in a critical condition after a head-on collision in Central Tilba on Saturday.

Emergency services were called to the Princes Highway near Brushgrove Lane about 1pm following reports of a crash.

Initial investigations suggest a Toyota Corolla and a Toyota Land Cruiser crashed head-on near Brushgrove Lane, 10km south of Narooma.

The driver of the Corolla, a 19-year-old woman, died at the scene. The passenger, a 19-year-old man, was airlifted to Canberra Hospital in a critical but stable condition.

The driver of the Land Cruiser, a 19-year-old man, was uninjured and taken to Bega Hospital for mandatory blood and urine tests.

The three teenage passengers of the Land Cruiser were treated by NSW Ambulance Paramedics and taken to Bega Hospital with minor injuries.

A crime scene was established by the Far South Coast Local Area Command and investigators from the Crash Investigation Unit were also in attendance.

The Princes Highway was closed in both directions for several hours after the accident but has now reopened.

A brief will be prepared for the Coroner.

Police are investigating and are urging witnesses to come forward. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page.
