The Hawke's Bay express way has reopened after a multi-vehicle crash involving a furniture truck which resulted in two people being taken to hospital.

The expressway was blocked off for emergency services to rescue two people following the collision between a furniture truck, a ute and a car at 1.45pm today on the Tutaekuri River bridge.

The ute's driver had to be extracted from the wreckage by firefighters and was taken to Hastings Hospital with serious leg injuries following this afternoon's crash near Taradale.

Another person involved in the crash was also taken to hospital with minor injuries, a St John ambulance spokesman said.

Both lanes of the highway had to be blocked to remove the vehicles and clear debris, which held up traffic as far as Links Rd and Meeanee Rd in Taradale.

Police said the cause of the collision was yet to be determined and was being investigated by the Serious Crash Unit.
