Two teenagers have been hospitalised after their ute crashed
into a tree at Raupunga, south of Wairoa today.
The crash happened just before 12.30pm, a Hawke's Bay
Helicopter Rescue Trust spokeswoman Louise Harvey said.
The 18-year-old female driver suffered head injuries and a
14-year-old boy suffered leg and pelvis injuries.
Both were transported by ambulance to the Ruapunga Rugby
Ground helicopter landing pad site, and then flown by rescue
helicopter to Hawke's Bay Regional Hospital.
