Police, fire and rescue workers arrived on the scene within minutes, as traffic continued to flow along Cobra Street.
The woman driver was supported by witnesses outside the Caltex service station, while emergency services officials secured the scene and cleaned up oil off the road.
When paramedics arrived she was transported to hospital for treatment.
Witnesses said she appeared to have an arm or shoulder injury.
Amanda Sladden from Dubbo Glass and Mechanical on Cobra Street said she has witnessed multiple accidents on the street in the past year.
"It's a matter of time before someone ends up getting killed," she said.
"I've been working here a year and have seen about seven accidents.
"I see a lot of people on their phones but there are parts of the road that are very confusing."
Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) western regional manager Alistair Lunn confirmed RMS is responsible for maintaining Cobra Street because it is part of the Mitchell Highway.
"In the past four years there have been six reported crashes, with most being rear-ender crashes," he claimed when the Daily Liberal contacted him.
"Planning work is under way to upgrade the Cobra Street and Fitzroy Street intersection from a roundabout to a signalised intersection."
"RMS continues to work closely with Dubbo Regional Council and the community regarding maintenance and work on this important road."
