Taranaki Daily News - - News -

One per­son is in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion af­ter a crash on State High­way 1 near Taupo¯ yes­ter­day. The per­son was the driver of the car which hit a bar­rier just south of Wairakei at 4.15pm. ‘‘The car is block­ing traf­fic in both di­rec­tions,’’ a po­lice spokes­woman said. The road was closed be­tween Wairakei round­about and Cen­ten­nial Dr un­til the scene was cleared. ‘‘Di­ver­sions are in place but they are a long way from the crash site, so we’re ask­ing peo­ple to de­lay their travel.’’
