A 39-year-old truck driver sustained moderate back injuries after their truck rolled in the Motueka Valley this morning.

The Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter was flown to the scene about 8am after the truck left the road and rolled down a bank, coming to rest on its side in a paddock in the Stanley Brook area.

The driver was assessed at the scene by St John ambulance and an intensive care paramedic onboard the helicopter before being flown to Nelson Hospital for further treatment.
