Hato Hone St John was alerted at 3.45am today to a fatal motor vehicle incident involving one of our vehicles in Cambridge, Waikato, where tragically the driver of the other vehicle lost their life at the scene.

Two ambulances, two rapid response vehicles, one supervisor, one senior manager and one helicopter responded to the scene.

The driver of our vehicle was critically injured and has been airlifted to Waikato Hospital.

Another health care professional, who was travelling in our vehicle at the time, was moderately injured and has also been taken to Waikato Hospital by ambulance.

Our focus right now is to support our people and our thoughts are with them, their wider family, and friends at this difficult time.

We are also supporting Police with their ongoing investigations into the crash.
