A 25-year-old man is in the intensive care unit at Taranaki Base Hospital after a crash on Porikapa Rd last night.

The man was one of four men injured in the crash about 8.45pm.

The car, a Mitsubishi Lancer, took out about 35m of farm fence and ended up upside down in a paddock. The front of the vehicle was caved in and the windscreen smashed.

St John ambulance paramedics transported four occupants, one in a critical condition, one with moderate injuries and two with minor injuries to hospital last night.

Taranaki District Health Board spokeswoman Sue Carrington said the 25-year-old man was "stable in ICU" and the other three patients, two 16-year-olds and one 17-year-old, had been discharged.

Farmer Nigel Bredin said it was the third car to go through a his fence in the last five years.
