A window fell from a Customhouse Quay high-rise and smashed on the pavement below this afternoon.

Police and fire crews were called to the Todd Building in central Wellington about 4.30pm today after reports a pane of glass had fallen from the west side of the building.

Shift manager Craig Dally said fire crews simply cleaned up the glass and no-one was injured.

Meanwhile, a motorcycle and a car collided near the intersection of Murphy St and Pipitea St about 5pm.

An ambulance spokeswoman said the motorcyclist, a man in his mid-30s, was treated for minor injuries on the scene but was not taken to hospital.

A police spokesman said the crash had not affected rush-hour traffic.
