Truck crash affects traffic

A firefighter puts sand on a diesel spill following a truck crash on Dunedin's Northern Motorway yesterday.

No-one was injured in the incident, but it forced a lane of the motorway to be closed for a short time.

Emergency services were called about 2.30pm after a small truck crashed into a barrier on State Highway 1, between Pine Hill Rd and Waitati Valley Rd.
