Commuters heading into New Plymouth faced minor delays this morning after a car and truck collided at the intersection of SH3 and Egmont Rd.

The crash happened about 7.20am and reduced the state highway to one lane at times while emergency services worked at the scene.

Senior Constable Mark Brown said it appeared the car was attempting to make a right turn into Egmont Rd from the highway.

''The truck was travelling towards New Plymouth and the car has just turned straight across in front of him,'' Mr Brown said.

Both drivers were taken to Taranaki Base Hospital with minor injuries.
