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.
Meanwhile, a car crashed into the bank on the Upper Hutt side of the Rimutaka Hill Rd this morning.
The accident was reported at about 10:15am.
Emergency services were responding, a police communications spokesman said.
It was not yet clear if anyone was hurt.
