An elderly man and woman have been taken to hospital in a critical condition following a single-vehicle crash in the Hunter.
Emergency crews were called to Wine Country Drive at North Rothbury - about 19km north of Cessnock - about 10.30pm on Monday following reports a Toyota Corolla had left the road and rolled.
The male driver and female passenger - both aged 94 - were trapped in the vehicle, before being freed a short time later.
The pair were taken to John Hunter Hospital with critical injuries.
Officers from Hunter Valley Police District, with assistance from the Crash Investigation Unit, established a crime scene and commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the crash.
As inquires continue, anyone with information, or dashcam footage from the area, is urged to come forward.
