A truck driver is in a serious condition after a crash in the Waikato last night.
Emergency services were called to State Highway 1, between Tīrau and Karapiro after reports a truck and trailer unit had rolled about 9.15pm.
Authorities confirmed the driver suffered serious injuries. SH1 between SH29 (Piarere) and SH1 (Tīrau) was closed as a result but has since reopened this morning.
Meanwhile, in Auckland, part of Whitford-Maraetai Rd - between Whitford and Beachlands - also remains closed after a crash yesterday evening.

Auckland Transport issued an alert on Twitter early this morning saying the crash had brought down power lines on a section of the road between Jack Lachlan Drive and Henson Rd.
As a result, that part of the road remains closed as authorities work to repair the lines.
"Vector [is] hopefully of the road reopening by 8am this morning," Auckland Transport said.
