A Gisborne woman thrown from her car in a crash on State Highway 2 yesterday remains in a critical condition.

The 59-year-old woman was driving in the southbound lane near Whakaki, north of Wairoa, when her car collided with a northbound truck.

Wairoa police sergeant Aubrey Ormond said the car had a ''glancing collision'' with the six-tonne truck at aound 8.30am. The truck rolled and its driver, a 47-year-old Napier man, was also thrown from his vehicle.

Both victims were flown to Hawke's Bay Regional Hospital by rescue helicopters. 

A hospital spokesman this morning said the woman was in a critical condition and the man remained in a serious condition.
