A woman was injured when her car crashed on State Highway 1 north of Wellington this morning.

The crash happened about 6.15am.

The car struck a barrier as it headed north, just past the motorway off-ramp to Johnsonville, a police communications spokesman said. 

The northbound lane was blocked after the crash, which caused some delays.

The scene has now been cleared.

A Wellington Free Ambulance spokesman said a woman in her 30s was taken to Wellington Hospital with moderate injuries.
