An 18-year-old Cressy woman has been charged with causing Grievous Bodily Harm after a crash on Thursday evening.

Police and emergency services responded to reports of a two-vehicle crash on Charles Street at Cressy about 5.30pm.

The driver of a  White Toyota Hilux, a 23-year-old Northern Midlands man, was taken to the Launceston General Hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of a White Holden Commodore was taken into custody at the scene, and later charged over the incident.

Police can confirm the people involved were known to each other.

Police will allege the victim was injured after stepping out of his vehicle immediately prior to the crash.

The 18-year-old woman was remanded to appear in the Launceston Magistrates Court later today.
