No one was injured in a crash on State Highway 36, between Tauranga and Rotorua.
Emergency services were called to the crash at the intersection of Te Matai and Pyes Pa roads at 7.35am.
A police spokesperson says there was only one vehicle involved in the crash.
“Apparently the vehicle is blocked the Te Matai side (not the highway side). No injuries, a tow is on the way to remove the vehicle.”
The crash comes after NZTA issued an ice warning for the roads in the Bay of Plenty.
A SunLive reader who regularly travels from Rotorua to Tauranga says he counted four crashes on the highway between the two cities.
"There is a tremendous amount of ice on the road especially around the gorge.
"I have just come through and counted four crashes just in and either side of the gorge."
