Two people were flown to Rotorua Hospital, one in a serious condition and the other critically injured, after a car crash on the western side of Lake Taupo on Saturday afternoon.

Part of State Highway 41 between Tokaanu and Kuratau Junction was closed so that the Serious Crash Unit could inspect the scene.

A lengthy detour was put in place via National Park and Taumarunui, with police advising northbound traffic to use State Highway 1.
