Roads re-open after crashes

7:47 pm on 12 October 2008

The Coatesville-Riverhead Highway north of Auckland has re-opened at the intersection of Screen Road following a crash on Sunday afternoon.

A ute and a motorbike collided with the driver of the latter seriously injured.

Further north, State Highway 16 about 30 kilometres from Wellsford has also re-opened after a car ended up in a ditch there.

Two people were hurt in that crash, one critically.

And in the South Island the main road between the Marlborough Sounds and Nelson has also re-opened.

Highway 6 had been blocked by a serious crash at Whangamoa.
