Two people were trapped after a crash between a car and two logging trucks in Pyes Pa.

Police Northern Communications Inspector Shawn Rutene said police were notified of the crash about 2.40pm.

Two logging trucks and a motor vehicle collided in the crash, trapping the truck driver and a person in the motor vehicle.

Both have now been freed from their vehicles and taken to Tauranga Hospital with moderate injuries.

The crash happened near Taumata Rd and diversions are in place down Taumata Road, although this is not available to heavy traffic, which police advise to avoid Pyes Pa road until further notice.
