An eight-tonne truck rolled on Grays Rd on Thurs­day, closing the State High­way 1 end for sev­eral hours.

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened on the nar­row, up­hill stretch just past Taupo Cres about 1.30pm, po­lice said.

Two peo­ple in the truck suf­fered mi­nor in­juries.

A crane was needed to move the truck.
