The fast lane heading into Mount Maunganui is still closed.

EARLIER: A crash on the Tauranga Harbour Bridge is slowing traffic.

Reports are that a car and a truck have collided in the fast lane headed towards Mount Maunganui.

A witness said it appeared the car had been side-swiped and had spun around to end up facing the wrong way.

The fast lane is closed but traffic is flowing slowly past.

No one appears to have been injured.
