A truck driver was seriously injured after a truck went off a bank and landed in a stream about 12km along Masterton Stronvar Rd at around 6pm on Thursday night.

It appeared the truck failed to negotiate a left-hand bend and crossed the road, taking out fencing before crashing down the bank for about 30 metres before coming to rest near a stream.

When police arrived, they found the driver, who had suffered serious injuries, conscious and breathing, a police media spokesperson said.

Fire services personnel carried the driver up to the road to be attended by ambulance staff.

A Life Flight helicopter was called from Wellington and arrived at the scene at 6.50pm to pick up the driver for treatment in Wellington.
