Part of the highway between Marlborough and Nelson was blocked for hours after a vehicle towing a caravan reportedly rolled on the road.

Emergency services were called to reports of the single-vehicle crash on SH6 shortly before 1pm on Wednesday.

A police spokeswoman said the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle suffered minor injuries.

A photo of the crash shows the caravan completely destroyed on the side of the road.

A tow truck was called and the motorists were told to expect delays.

The road was reopened about 6.55pm yesterday.
