A woman has been seriously injured after a fertiliser truck and a van collided in Hornby.

A police spokesman said the crash happened at the intersection of Main South and Springs roads about 6.30am.

Two fire trucks from Harewood and Sockburn station were called to cut the woman free from the van, which had landed on its roof.

The Press understands no-one else was in the vehicle.

A Fire Service spokesman understood the woman had serious injuries.

He said it was lucky the Sockburn station was not far from where the crash took place.

She was taken by ambulance to Christchurch Hospital.

The truck driver was uninjured.

Police remain at the scene, and motorists have been advised to expect delays. A detour is in place.
