A four car nose-to-tail crash in Te Puna slowed traffic into Tauraga this morning.
Police and St John staff were called to the crash on State Highway 2 near Clarke Rd about 8.30am.
Constable Rich Martin said the Bethlehem College student driving the Volkswagon Golf failed to stop and hit the last car in a queue of traffic heading into Tauranga causing the two other cars to be shunted forward into the cars in front of hers.
No one was injured. The Golf had to be towed from the scene.
