Police believe excessive speed was a factor in a single-vehicle crash in the state's south on Friday night, that's seen a young Kingston woman taken to hospital in a critical condition.

The 21-year-old was trapped in her red Toyota Camry for a short period, after the accident on the South Arm Highway at Sandford at around 7:15pm.

A 19-year-old female passenger only suffered minor injuries.

The South Arm Highway was closed for a short period just north of the Clifton Beach turnoff while forensic and Crash Investigation Services personnel examined the scene.

“Preliminary investigations indicate that excessive speed for the conditions was a contributing factor in this crash,” Sergeant Adrian Mollon said.

“With increased traffic over this long weekend, we ask that motorists drive to the road conditions, particularly when travelling at night on damp roads,” he said.

Anyone with information on the accident is urged to contact authorities.
