Two trucks blown over

10:20 am on 22 July 2011

Two truck and trailer units were blown over by high winds north of Shannon in Horowhenua, closing State Highway 56 on Friday morning.

One truck is blocking the road completely, south of the Opiki Road turn-off and a diversion is in place through Foxton and state highway one.

Police in Palmerston North say one truck was empty and the cargo in the other was not spilled.
