A woman is in hospital on life support following a crash in the Manawatu region in the early hours of this morning.

The vehicle the woman was travelling in hit a bank and she was thrown from the car, he said.

Two other passengers were in the vehicle at the time of the crash. Their condition was currently unclear.

The woman was taken to Palmerston North Hospital in a critical condition, Mr Rose said. She was currently on life support.

A decision regarding whether to keep the woman on life support was expected to be made later this morning.
