A Queensland woman has been critically injured in a bus crash in Spain that left one passenger dead.

Julie Ann Fiegart, from Burpengary, north of Brisbane, was almost ready to head home after the "holiday of her lifetime" when the coach she was on and a truck collided on a motorway north of Madrid on Monday afternoon, her daughter Michelle Jenner says.

The crash left a 26-year-old woman dead and seven people seriously injured, local media reports said.

Ms Jenner said her mother's legs were crushed in the crash and she also suffered punctured lungs, a broken arm, a broken collarbone and broken ribs.

She has started a GoFundMe page to help cover medical costs and keep her father in Spain by her mother's side.

"She was almost ready to head home this week when tragedy has stopped her in her path," Ms Jenner wrote on the crowdfunding page.

"She is going to have a very very long stay in this hospital in Madrid and need multiple surgeries as well as therapies, recovery sessions and many costs to keep dad over in Spain by her side the entire time."

The GoFundMe page has so far raised more than $8000.
