Heavy fog was possibly a contributing factor to an accident on State Highway 29 this morning.
Police received a report at around 8.45am that a car had been driven into a fence on the Waikato side of the Kaimai Range.
A police spokesperson says there was heavy fog in the area at the time.
“There was one person in the car, who suffered no injuries,” she says.
“The road was partially blocked and one lane was closed. Police were on scene to control the traffic.”
A tow truck was due at the crash scene at around 9.30am, so police expect the road to be clear now.
