A woman has been flown to Waikato Hospital with serious injuries after a collision between a car and a truck in Otorohanga.
The woman was trapped in the wreckage of her car for about 40 minutes following the incident, which happened on Huiputea Drive at 11.27am.
Emergency services closed the road, which runs through Otorohanga, about 60km south of Hamilton, while they worked to free the seriously injured woman.
She was eventually airlifted to Waikato Hospital in the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
