Motorcycle crash closes highway
Emergency services are responding to a serious crash in North Canterbury.
A police spokesman said officers were on their way to a motorcycle crash on State Highway 1 near the Ashley River bridge, just north of Waikuku.
"We've had a report of a serious crash there," he said.
It is not yet known if there was another vehicle involved, or how many people were injured.
The Fire Service and St John are also in attendance.
The highway was closed and there is no time frame for the road reopening at this stage.
There are diversions in place for light vehicles only at this time.
