People trapped after Dunedin crash

Two people had to be extracted from their vehicles after a crash on Dunedin's northern motorway, just north of Pine Hill, this evening.

Emergency services were notified about 5.50pm, and two people were taken to Dunedin Hospital.

It is believed the vehicles were in a head-on collision.

A detour is in place through Leith Valley, but it is not suitable for trucks.

Noise from the crash

The noise from the crash is something I will never forget.  And that was from home in Pine Hill.  After phoning emergency services with a bird's eye view of the accident they were there within what seemed like seconds!
