A man has somehow survived after his ute was crushed by a garbage truck at Bilgola Beach early this morning.

The truck rolled on the notorious Bilgola Bends with the ute driver trapped for hours before being freed.

The man will be flown to Royal North Shore Hospital, paramedics say it’s miraculous the 30-year-old driver of the ute wasn’t seriously injured. He was trapped for two hours. His car was crushed under the weight of the truck.

Assessed on the scene, he escaped with minor cuts and was airlifted to hospital for medical assessment.

The driver of the truck escaped without injury and was treated for shock by paramedics.

7NEWS understands he was travelling south towards Newport when he collided with the ute which had been travelling north. He was very lucky to suffer minor injuries.
