Once on scene Incident Controller 1st Lieutenant Terry Borg noted that the driver was trapped and requested Gisborne SES to be responded for patient extraction.

The sole occupant of the vehicle, a male believed to be in his mid to late 20's was trapped for 30mins while SES, CFA and ambulance crews worked to free him safely.

The driver is in a critical condition and had to be air lifted to hospital. The inbound lanes was closed to traffic for approx 45mins for the police air wing to land safely on the road surface.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident.
