Emergency staff have rescued two people trapped in their vehicles after two logging trucks and a car crashed near Tauranga.

Police say one of the truck drivers and a person in the car have been taken to Tauranga Hospital with moderate injuries on Wednesday.

Light traffic is being diverted down Taumata Road, but police advise drivers of heavy vehicles to avoid Pyes Pa Road until further notice.

The road is expected to be closed until late on Wednesday afternoon.
