Crash causes motorway delays

A crash on the Southern Motorway caused delays for commuters in Dunedin yesterday morning.

Emergency services were called to the scene on State Highway 1 after two vehicles collided near Lookout Point at 7.55am.

A police spokeswoman said the cars were removed from the road allowing the traffic that had backed up along the motorway to be cleared shortly after.

Fire crews cleaned up fluid that had leaked on the road and there did not appear to be any injuries, she said.
