Milk tanker rolls on SH2

2:55 pm on 27 July 2008

State Highway 2 north of Wairoa in Hawke's Bay is restricted to one lane after a milk tanker rolled and spilled its contents.

The tanker rolled shortly before midday on Sunday about 25 kilometres east of Wairoa, between Nuhaka and the bridge over the Tahaenui River.

The fire service says milk is leaking from the vehicle but can't say if it is entering the water.

Police says the tanker's driver was taken to Wairoa Hospital by a member of the public.
