A single car crash on State Highway 4, near Kopaki, at approximately 4pm yesterday afternoon saw the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter being dispatched to assist.
It was reported that the car left the road crossing a over shallow ditch and coming to a sudden stop in roadside bush.
The two occupants were believed to be sisters, both in their 60’s. Both women suffered moderate injuries and after being treated at the scene by St John staff they were both flown to Waikato Hospital for further treatment.
