An elderly man has been rescued from the wreckage of a collision between a car and a truck in the Auckland suburb of Warkworth.
At 12.30pm today, the Auckland Westpac Rescue Helicopter was called to the scene of the crash at the intersection of State Highway 1 and Wech Dr.
The man in his 80s was rescued by crew after he became trapped in his vehicle.
He was flown to Auckland City Hospital in a critical condition.
State Highway 1 was closed in both directions earlier this afternoon, but has since re-opened.
NZTA said to expect delays or avoid the area.
