An Auckland woman was only a few kilometres from her destination when the motorbike she was a passenger on crashed near Kaikoura yesterday.

St John team manager Don Wright said the woman's leg was lacerated from skidding along the road after she came off the bike.

A car was also involved in the crash.

A woman in the vehicle had minor injuries, Mr Wright said.

The crash happened about 4.30pm at the corner of Schoolhouse Rd and State Highway 1 just north of Kaikoura.
