A motocross rider was flown to hospital after a crash at Awakino yesterday afternoon.

St John operation manager Ian May said the crash happened at the same time as an incident at Rawhitiroa Memorial Pool so the Rotorua rescue helicopter was called.

The rider was flown to Taranaki Base Hospital with moderate head and arm injuries.
