A stretch of road in Te Puke has reopened following a serious crash this morning.

A police media spokeswoman said two cars have crashed at the intersection of Belvedere St and Jellicoe St just before 7am.

The spokeswoman said two people were seriously injured in the crash and were trapped inside the vehicles.
