The rescue helicopter was called to Waihi this morning to airlift a woman who clipped a car on her mobility scooter to Waikato Hospital.

The incident occurred just after 10 am at the roundabout on the corner of Seddon Street and Rosemont Road.

A witness said the woman was spilled off her mobility scooter onto the road when she pulled out to cross the road and hit the back of a passing vehicle.
