Two people have been hurt, one critically, in a crash in Napier last night.

Central Ambulance Communications' shift leader Greg Cottrell said two people were taken by ambulance to Hawke's Bay Hospital.

One had critical injuries and one had serious injuries.

He understood the pair were injured when a car struck a fence on Riverbend Rd and Richmond St just before 10.30pm.


The fire service were also at the scene, Cottrell said.

Police did not have any immediate information on the incident.
