Two injured in accidents

One person was left trapped after a two-car collision this evening.

The injured person was taken to hospital with moderate injuries after two cars crashed in Havelock North this evening. No other injuries occurred in the accident, which happened at 6.30pm on Crosses Rd, an ambulance spokesman said.

A second person was hospitalised – this time with serious injuries - after his motorcycle crashed into a fence earlier this afternoon.

The 50-year-old lost control of his bike on Te Whiti Rd, Masterton just after 3pm today, the spokesman said.

He was taken by rescue helicopter to Wellington Hospital in a serious condition.
