A 16-year-old girl was flown to hospital earlier today after falling from a quad bike.

The girl, who was a passenger on the bike, is understood to have suffered a spinal injury.

The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to a track near Oparau, east of Kawhia, where the incident took place.

A spokesperson has since confirmed the teen was flown to Waikato Hospital for treatment.

The severity of her injuries is unknown at this time.
