A milk tanker has rolled into a paddock in South Taranaki after a crash with a car, leaving the car's driver badly hurt.

The accident happened near the intersection with Ohangai, Tawhiti and Ararata Roads near Hawera on Wednesday morning, police say.

The driver of the car suffered critical injuries and was taken to hospital, not the driver of the milk tanker as previously advised by police.

A section of Ohangai road is closed off while police investigate what caused the crash.
