Two people remain in hospital after a crash on State Highway 2 on Saturday evening.

The collision between two vehicles occurred just before 5pm near the intersection of State Highway 2 and Omokoroa Road.

It resulted in a car going down a bank and trapping one of the occupants, who was badly injured.

A 52-year-old man was airlifted to Waikato Hospital, where he remains today in HDU in a serious condition.

A 50-year-old Mount Maunganui woman was transported to Tauranga Hospital and remains in intensive care in a stable condition.

A 62-year-old Katikati woman was also admitted to Tauranga Hospital, but was treated and discharged last night.

The road was closed for several hours while emergency services cleared the scene.
