The driver of a logging truck that crashed in the Kaimai
Ranges remains trapped in the vehicle as emergency services
work to clear the highway.
The crash happened about 12.45pm near the Ruahihi Power
Station. The accident shut down State Highway 29 as emergency
services responded. Traffic is now backed up for several
kilometres, with traffic being diverted to Te Puna.
Police northern communications Inspector Ian Brooker said
motorists were advised to use alternative routes until the
scene could be cleared.
