Pile-up on SH1 near Wellington

1:25 pm on 16 April 2011

A multiple car pile-up closed part of State Highway 1 between Tawa and Porirua north of Wellington on Saturday.

Five or six cars were involved in the crash that blocked the north bound lane for a time.

Police said roads in the Wellington region were very greasy and drivers should take care, and use their headlights in the foggy drizzling conditions.
