Crashes on wet roads

11:12 am on 27 April 2009

Wet roads contributed to five road crashes in the lower North Island on Monday morning.

Emergency services attended traffic accidents on State Highway 2 near Masterton, Haywards Hill Road near Lower Hutt and the Aotea motorway on-ramp in central Wellington.

A crash in the Terrace tunnel was cleared quickly and a northbound vehicle rolled in Ngauranga Gorge .

A car and truck also collided on the Napier -Taupo Rd.

No serious injuries were reported from the five incidents.

All roads are now open with traffic flowing freely.
