An empty logging truck and a car have collided on Hamurana Rd.

A reporter at the scene, halfway between Oturoa and Central Rds, said the front right hand side of the silver Mazda sedan was badly damaged.

The occupant of the car had walked away from the crash and was being treated by St John ambulance staff, he said.

The truck had sustained minor damage.


He said traffic was backed up and with one lane blocked, a stop/go system was in place.


Emergency services are on their way to a two-car crash on Hamurana Rd on State Highway 36.

A police spokeswoman said one lane was blocked.

She said police were called to the crash at 3.03pm.

More to come.
