A school bus has collided with a ute just west of Tauranga.
Police communications inspector Matt Sillars said it was "relatively minor", and there were thought to be no injuries.
"It's certainly not major but a 4WD and a bus ended up touching at some point.
"Traffic was already moving around the crash."
He said police, fire and ambulance were all attending the scene.
