A person was injured this morning after a large tree fell on their vehicle on Middleton Rd, Johnsonville, blocking both sides of the road.
Their truck was caught under the falling tree as it passed through, but the driver managed to escape with "minor injuries" and was treated at the seen, police said.
The road was closed for several hours due to the blockage, with council issuing an update after 2pm that the tree was nearly removed.
The Wellington City Council callout team and Fire and Emergency were called to the site at Middleton Rd just north of Churton Drive this morning.
