NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 1/06/2016 Cleo Fraser

Seven people have been injured, including two seriously, in a crash in the Southern Alps.

The one-vehicle accident happened just before 2pm near Rata Road on State Highway 6 at Haast Pass, a police spokeswoman says.

One person had to be cut from the people mover.

The two who were seriously hurt were flown to hospital while the others were taken in an ambulance.

The road remains closed.

The police spokeswoman says it's too early to say what caused the crash and they couldn't provide details about the injuries of those involved.
