Two minor car crashes happened within minutes on opposite sides of Queens Park in Invercargill yesterday.
About 3.30pm, police were called to a two-car collision near the intersection of Gala St and Queens Drive, the junction named one of the "dirtiest" in the city for the number of crashes there.
Police Senior Sergeant Maggie Windle said a truck hit a Rav4 and two other cars.
One woman was treated at the scene for minor injuries by ambulance crews.
There were six children in the cars involved, Ms Windle said, but none were injured.
About 3.50pm, there was a three-car collision at the intersection of Herbert St and Swinton St.
A white pickup truck, grey saloon and a dark green Land Rover Discovery were all damaged.
The front end of the pickup was smashed, with glass and debris littering the road, but nobody was hurt.
There was a fuel spill from the Land Rover which was cleaned up by the fire service, Ms Windle said.
