While traffic is normally bad at this time of the day, there may be extra delays due to a crash earlier this morning.

Emergency services were called to a crash near the Wairoa Bridge at 7.15am.

A police spokesperson says a car had gone down a bank and one person has sustained moderate injuries.

There are also reports that a truck may have been involved in the crash, but this has not been confirmed by police.

Callers to the 0800 SUNLIVE news hotline says police are still at the scene with a truck and trailer unit that is on the side of the road.
