A woman is in serious condition in Whakatane Hospital following a crash between a truck and car earlier this morning.

The vehicles collided just before 3am on White Pine Bush Road, near the Pekatahi Bridge, in the Eastern Bay of Plenty.

An ambulance attended the scene and all were taken hospital, says a police spokesperson.

“The female driver is in a serious condition and two passengers are in moderate condition.

“The driver of the truck was uninjured.”

The road was closed for a time while the Serious Crash unit investigated, but reopened about an hour ago.
