The crash involved a truck and two other vehicles.

Two occupants had very minor injuries.

A helicopter was initially called but was not required.

Balclutha Police acting Snr Sgt Chris Wakelin said the truck had since been located, and its driver was helping police with inquiries.

He said the incident had involved only two cars and a truck, not four vehicles as first reported.
