Two dead after SH1 crash at Karapiro, motorists warned to delay journey

Two people are dead after an early morning crash involving a car and truck south of Cambridge.

A stretch of State Highway 1 is closed between Karapiro Rd and SH29 following the crash, which happened around 1.40am.

Police said two occupants of the car died at the scene.

Police said the closure was to allow officers to complete an examination of the crash site and for contractors to clear the area.

It was expected the road would remain closed for several more hours, said a spokesperson.

Motorists were being warned to delay their journey or allowing up to 20 minutes for a detour.

Another person has been injured in a crash involving a car and motorcycle in west Auckland last night.

Emergency services were called to the crash at the intersection of Gardener and Astley Aves in New Lynn, about 9pm.
