The driver of one of the cars received serious abdominal injuries in the crash and was flown to Tauranga hospital in a serious condition.

The driver of the second car received chest injuries and he also was transported on the same flight to Tauranga hospital in a moderate condition.

The remaining patients from both cars were taken by St John ambulance to Whakatane hospital with moderate injuries.
