Inspector Ken Climo of central police communications said there was a large amount of debris that had closed the northbound lane.
Police were contacted by a train driver at the scene.
A woman was trapped in her vehicle with chest injuries but had since been freed.
She and another person were taken to Wellington Hospital with moderate injuries.
