Wellington police want to speak with witnesses to a crash on State Highway 1, after the driver who allegedly caused the accident fled.
A female driver suffered moderate injuries after her car flipped near the Churton Park off-ramp at about 4.18pm last night.
The crash happened after a silver or grey car made an unsafe lane change, forcing another vehicle to take evasive action.
The second vehicle hit a bank and overturned.
It was likely the driver of the silver or grey car knew the crash occurred, but carried on without stopping, police said.
The crash caused delays north of Wellington until the congestion cleared about 6:30pm.
Any witnesses to the crash can call senior sergeant Richard Hocken of Wellington police on 04 381 2000.
