This morning at 9am the TECT Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to a serious motor vehicle accident on SH36, between Tauranga and Rotorua.
A small car with two occupants lost control and slid sideways into the path of an oncoming logging truck.
A woman in her twenties received critical head and chest injuries as a result, she was assessed by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic and stabilised at the scene before being flown to Waikato Hospital in a critical condition.
