Driver killed when truck crashes over bank on Remutaka Hill road

News from NZ Police
The Remutaka Hill Road was closed for four hours this afternoon after a fatal crash. At around 11:50am a truck had overturned and gone down a bank.

The driver was killed.

The road was closed to allow emergency services to reach the crashed truck.

It reopened at 4pm, with speed restrictions. There were long delays on both sides of the hill.

The Serious Crash Unit had been examining the crash scene.

A recommended detour via SH1 would have added three hours to the trip.
