Truck crashes across Auckland motorway

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 10/08/2016

A section of Auckland's Southern Motorway has closed after a truck careened into the opposite side of the highway and crashed.

Police say the vehicle was heading south near Bombay when it crashed through barriers and into the northern lane, coming to a standstill after hitting a bank.

The driver has been checked by paramedics and officers are investigating the cause of the crash.

No other vehicles were involved.

Police are warning drivers to expect significant delays heading north as they move the truck and diversions have been put in place.

They have asked drivers to avoid "rubbernecking past the scene".
