Emergency services have been called to a multi-car crash on Dunedin's Southern Motorway.

A police spokesman said they were called to the crash just after the Mosgiel on-ramp at 7.55am.

Three vehicles were involved in the crash and that the eastbound lanes were partially blocked.

Traffic was backed up and diverted for a time after the crash.

St John and Fire and Emergency New Zealand were also at the scene.

Traffic was also building up along the motorway.

A St John spokesman said six people were assessed at the scene, but only one person, who suffered minor injuries, required transporting to Dunedin Hospital.
