Fire crews worked to free a person trapped after a crash in Rolleston this morning.

Emergency services were called to the crash at the intersection of Wards and Sandy Knolls Rds about 7.30am.

A Fire and Emergency NZ spokesperson said extraction tools were used to free them.

A St John spokesperson said they sent two ambulances, one rapid response vehicle and one manager to the scene.

Two patients were being treated – one in a serious condition and one in a moderate condition and are expected to be transported to Christchurch Hospital.

The car appears to have rolled some distance.
