Two truck drivers have been trapped for an hour before being flown to hospital after a horrific smash on a major NSW highway.

At 11.15am, a B-Double truck crossed the road and collided with a northbound truck on the Pacific Highway about 120km north of Newcastle, police were told.

The two male drivers were trapped inside their trucks for an hour as emergency services fought to free them and they were sent by helicopter to hospital with head and limb injuries.

Passengers from other cars were also caught up in the crash, with four more patients from a car towing a caravan and another car checked by ambulance crew but found to have no major injuries, NSW Ambulance said.

All northbound lanes of the highway and two of the three southbound lanes have been closed.
