8:02 pm on 5 May 2015

Two people have been taken to Wellington Hospital in a serious condition after a head-on collision involving a tow truck and a van on State Highway One at Paekakariki tonight.

A commuter said she was backed up for several kilometres on State Highway One following the crash.

Drivers were being advised to detour through Paekakariki but the commuter said drivers heading North would be better off turning right at Pauatahanui and taking the Paekakariki Hill road instead.

The Serious Crash Squad was investigating.
