A crash is causing delays at the intersection of East Tamaki Rd and Bairds Rd in Otara, South Auckland, and motorists are asked to avoid the area.

A police spokesman said two cars collided about 5.19pm.

The Fire Service extinguished a fire at the scene.



One person has moderate injuries and one has minor injuries - but both are "walking around" the spokesman said.

Both cars will be towed, and Auckland Transport has reported delays in the area.
