Motorcyclist airlifted off Tararua Range

A motorcyclist injured in a crash in the Tararua Range near Palmerston North was airlifted by helicopter to hospital on Saturday morning.

A police spokeswoman said police were alerted about 10.20am to the crash in the vicinity of Mangahao Rd, up the hill from Shannon.

The crash happened on a dirt road, where there was no access for a St John ambulance.

The man had moderate injuries.
