A police spokesman said emergency services were called to the scene between Whangarei Heads and Grahamtown roads in Onerahi at 1.08pm.

A 111 caller told police two cars and a ute were involved.

Police have cordoned off the road.

She wasn't sure if anybody was injured.

"All we're worried about is getting people out."
