    Two crashes involving trucks between Tekapo and Twizel

    Two crashes involving trucks between Tekapo and Twizel


    A police spokesperson says emergency services were called to State Highway 8 just after midnight, when a truck and trailer tipped over in icy conditions.

    A short time later, a second truck has approached the scene and crashed into the trailer that had tipped.

    One person has injuries.

    Waka Kotahi contractors are still on site, removing the trucks and putting grit on the road.
