A "serious crash" in north Timaru has forced police to close down part of State Highway 1.
The crash occurred just before 2pm this afternoon and an ambulance was sent to the scene, a police spokeswoman said.
Details of the crash remain scarce but police are still diverting traffic from the highway, she said.
