Milk tanker rolls in Matata

Investigations are underway after a milk tanker and trailer unit rolled on Matata Road yesterday afternoon.

Initial reports were that the driver was trapped inside the vehicle.

Emergency services were called to the scene just before three, after the milk tanker and trailer unit had come to a rest on its side beside railway tracks.

The driver was transported to Whakatane Hospital and was reported to be in a moderate condition.
