Auckland motorway traffic at a crawl after truck crash

8:30 pm on 26 October 2012

Traffic slowed to a crawl on Auckland's southern motorway on Friday afternoon after a truck crashed into an overbridge.

The accident occurred near the Mt Wellington exit just before 2pm.

Emergency services say no one was injured, but there was a lot of glass in the southbound lanes.

At one point police said traffic was backed up about 15 kilometres from the Mt Wellington exit to the harbour bridge.
