Six injured in crash near Taupo

Six people are injured, one critically, and traffic on State Highway 1 just south of Taupo was disrupted after two cars crashed.

The accident happened at Waitahanui shortly after 5:30pm today, police say.

One lane of the highway was kept open because the alternative for motorists was a long trip around the lake. Both lanes have since reopened.

The serious crash unit is investigating.
