The Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter along with the Lifeflight Rescue Helicopter from Wellington were dispatched to SH2, Mikimiki, in the Wairarapa.
A motor vehicle accident had taken place, involving two vehicles that had collided head-on at high speed.
Both drivers from each car had sustained serious injuries and were treated at the scene by onboard Intensive Care Paramedics from both helicopters.
Due to the serious nature of the injuries of both patients, they were flown to Wellington Hospital for further urgent treatment.
