Firefighters had to cut the woman's body from the Hyundai.

There was debris strewn across the road for more than 50m.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services earlier confirmed crews used extrication equipment to try to free the man who was trapped in his crashed Mitsubishi ute.

He was taken to Fremantle Hospital, where he is in a stable condition.

The injured man's girlfriend told Seven News the Barrow Island FIFO worker was on his way to the airport.

St John Ambulance said an onlooker is believed to have given the victim CPR before paramedics arrived on the scene.

North Lake Road is closed northbound near Discovery Drive and southbound at Phoenix Road.

Major Crash investigators have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
