A two vehicle crash at Mourea today has prompted a warning from police about slippery roads after rainfall last night and this morning.

The crash happened at the intersection of Hamurana Rd and State Highway 33 about 10.15am with one of the cars leaving the road and getting stuck in vegetation.

One person was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Sergeant Jason Shailer of Rotorua police told the Rotorua Daily Post that with the recent dry conditions overnight rain has caused roads to become slippery.

"We're asking the public to take care and drive to the conditions, especially as it is a long weekend and the roads will be busy," he said.

Mr Shailer said a tow truck was trying to remove the vehicle from bush on the side of the road.

The road remains open to traffic, but one lane was closed near the accident.
