An elderly woman has moderate injuries following a crash on State Highway 2 this afternoon.

Western Bay of Plenty head of road policing Senior Sergeant Ian Campion said the two-vehicle crash was at the intersection of Omokoroa Rd and SH2.

The crash initially blocked the Tauranga-bound lane but was cleared by 5pm.

A witness to the crash, who would not be named, said the elderly woman was in a Volvo turning right out of Omokoroa Rd.

There was a collision between her car and a white Toyota van heading towards Tauranga.

The witness said the two men in the van were not injured or trapped, and were helping to direct traffic. The woman was taken away in an ambulance, he said.

Northern fire communications shift manager Megan Ruru said fire crews had left the scene.
