Motorists can expect a delay of three hours on the Beaumont highway in Central Otago after a van and car collided head-on.

Police, fire and ambulance staff are at the crash on State Highway 8, northwest of Lawrence. Occupants of both vehicles are in a serious condition, a police statement says.

The road is blocked with a detour in place via Cockleshell, Franklin and Tuapeka West roads.

The detour will be in place for at least three hours.
