Police have confirmed that one person has died following the crash in Dome Valley on Wednesday afternoon.
A further three are injured and one is in serious condition.
Emergency services were called to the scene of the crash, near Waiwhiu Conical Peak Rd, about 11.30am on Wednesday.
Two people have been airlifted to Auckland City Hospital after a crash in the Dome Valley, north Auckland.
St John Ambulance spokeswoman Beverley Tse said one patient in critical condition had been airlifted to the hospital by an Auckland Westpac Rescue helicopter.
Another person in a serious condition had been airlifted by Northland Emergency Services Trust.
She said a third person in a serious condition was transported via ambulance to the hospital.
A spokesman for Fire and Emergency NZ earlier said people were trapped in the vehicles.
There are significant roadworks underway on SH1 from Puhoi through to Wellsford, as part of the Ara Thono motorway construction and NZTA’s project to make the journey through the Dome Valley safer.
Much of the road is down to a single lane in each direction, with speed limited to 50kmh.
State Highway 1 between Warkworth and Wellsford reopened at 3.30pm, about three hours after it was closed due to the crash.
