A driver and passenger have escaped serious injury after a truck tipped into a ditch on State Highway 5 in Hawke's Bay.
The crash happened on the Napier-Taupo Rd between Kowaro and Paratu Rd about 4 am on Friday.
Firefighters and police at the scene found both occupants safely out of the vehicle on arrival.
The truck would remain at the site for the forseeable future as a crane would need to be called in to get both the truck and trailer out, a police spokesperson said.
The two occupants of the truck did not require any medical assistance.
