Lower Hutt Police senior sergeant Marc Clausen said a man parked his car near the old Petone Bowling Club and intentionally crossed the motorway.

He was hit by a van, and suffered serious injuries.

The man was transferred to Hutt Hospital, and is in a stable condition.

A diversion was set up for southbound traffic while police investigated the accident, but the lanes have now been re-opened.
