A man has been hospitalised with moderate injuries after his vehicle collided with a train near Rakaia.

The crash happened on the Hatfield Overdale Rd, just south of Rakaia, about 2.50pm today.

A Fire Service spokesman said the driver of the car was trapped in his vehicle initially and firefighters had to use an "extrication kit" to free him from the wreckage.

No-one else was in the car and the driver of the train was not believed to have been injured in the crash. 

A St John spokeswoman said the car's driver suffered moderate injuries and was taken to Ashburton Hospital by ambulance.
