One person dies, another injured, following crash on SH2, south of Wairoa

One person has died and one has been seriously injured in a crash on State Highway 2 south of Wairoa this morning.

Their car is reported to have collided with a slip blocking State Highway 2 between The Crescent and Kiwi Valley Road, police said in a statement.

"Work is under way to partially clear the slip so that one lane can be opened."

Motorists wanting to travel between Napier and Wairoa today can use Awamete Road, which has recently reopened, instead of State Highway 2.
