The serious head-on collision between a car and a truck near the airport closed Puhinui Rd for several hours.
Inspector Andy Brill said a truck and trailer unit had been involved and was understood to have collided with a car travelling in the other direction.
An ambulance spokeswoman confirmed one person was hospitalised in a serious condition but could not provide details on others involved in the incident.
