A man is in serious condition in Middlemore Hospital after his ute rolled 10m down a bank.

A passerby found the man and his ute in bush on Kawakawa-Orere Road, near Auckland, around 9am yesterday.

This was a day after the crash had happened.

The Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust was tasked to assist the injured man.

A spokesperson for the rescue helicopter says the man, believed to be in his 40s, suffered spinal injuries and had to be extricated from the vehicle.

“He was flown to Middlemore Hospital in a serious condition.”
