Three escape fire after Hawke's Bay crash

Three people, including a pregnant woman, were able to climb out of their crashed car before it burst into flames in southern Hawke's Bay this afternoon.

The car left the road southeast of Waipukurau and caught on fire but the occupants escaped the blaze, a statement from the Lowe Corporation Rescue Helicopter said.

A 20-year-old pregnant woman with chest and pelvic injuries was airlifted to Hawke's Bay Regional Hospital for further treatment.
