A tourist driver's failure to give way is the likely cause of a crash at an Oamaru intersection today, police say.

Constable Neil Rushton said an Oamaru woman driving north suffered minor injuries after a 57-year-old Chinese woman driving a camper van failed to give way at the intersection of Arun and Tyne Sts about 1pm.

No one in the camper van was injured.

Investigations were continuing.
