4:19 pm on 5 February 2011

A crash north of Wellington is delaying traffic heading out of the city.

The ambulance service says seven people received minor to moderate injuries when their van hit the barrier near Tawa on State Highway One.

Police say one northbound lane is blocked, and drivers can expect delays until about 5pm on Saturday.

They say people travelling north from Wellington should delay their journey, or use the alternative route of State Highway 58 between the Hutt Valley and Paremata.
