A crash near Invercargill this afternoon has left two people injured and closed State Highway 1 for a time.
A police spokeswoman said they were called to a single-car crash at 1.50pm, on State Highway 1 between Kennington-Roslyn Bush Rd and Longbush South Rd, Roslyn Bush.
Although the car was off to the side of the road, power lines brought down as a result of the crash caused an ‘‘obstruction’’, she said.
A St John spokeswoman said one patient was moderately injured, and one received minor injuries.
Both were transported to Southland Hospital.
The road was re-opened at 3.25pm.
