It was a slow trip between Paraparaumu and Waikanae  this morning due to a traffic incident about 7.30am on the Waikanae straight near the intersection of Kebbell Dr and State Highway 1, south of Waikanae.

A man was flown to hospital  after the truck crashed near rail lines, resulting in the cancellation of some train services between Waikanae and Paraparaumu. 

The incident was attended to by two fire appliances, an ambulance and several police cars.waikanae-smash-photo-2

Traffic was backed up between the Otaihanga round about on the south end, and through the lights in Waikanae on the northern side.
