The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter said the car was driven off the road and crashed into the side wall of a farmer's concrete underpass near Waotu, about 9.30pm last night.

The driver, 17, and a 15-year-old passenger, both female, received multiple injuries and were flown to Waikato Hospital.

The three remaining passengers received minor to moderate injuries and were taken to hospital by ambulance.
