Crash blocks Cromwell to Queenstown road

A car crash temporarily blocked the main highway to Queenstown from Cromwell reducing traffic down to one lane.

Shortly before 5.30pm the vehicle was pulled from the road entirely. 

A police spokeswoman said a light truck rolled on State Highway 6, between the Crown Range Rd and Chard Rd, near the AJ Hackett Bungy Centre, blocking the road.

No one was injured.

Fire volunteers were called because of a fuel leak and a tow truck was on the way, she said.
