A crash between a truck and a vehicle towing a trailer-load
of canoes has blocked most of State Highway 1 at Plimmerton,
north of Wellington.
The incident happened about 12.20pm, central police
communications shift commander Mark Oliver said.
A towtruck was at the scene, but it was not known how long it
would take to clear the road.
Both lanes southbound and one northbound were blocked and
motorists should expect delays, Mr Oliver said.
Nobody was injured in the crash, he said.
