One person injured in crash

Emergency services responded to reports of a crash between a car and a truck on the Lindis Pass yesterday.

A police spokeswoman said they were notified of the crash in Lindis-Tarras Rd (State Highway 8) about 12.35pm.

Emergency services attended the scene just north of Tarras, between Cluden Creek Rd and Phillips Rd, the spokeswoman said.

The road was not blocked.

A St John spokeswoman said one ambulance responded and took one patient to Wanaka Medical Centre with minor injuries.
