The Westpac Rescue Helicopter, with a Wellington Free Ambulance paramedic onboard, was called to SH 2 at the BP Horokiwi fuel stop at approximately 1245 pm today.

On arrival of the helicopter at the scene multiple patients were being treated by Wellington Free Ambulance personnel, with assistance from the Fire Service. A 40 year old Wellington man, who was the driver of the vehicle, was extricated from the car and stabilized before being flown to Wellington Hospital Emergency Department by helicopter with multiple injuries.

He is currently being assessed further by Emergency Department and surgical staff.
