VIDEO: Truck rolls near Katikati

Friday 9 Aug 2013 3:02 p.m.

A man is in hospital in a serious condition after the logging truck he was driving rolled near Katikati this afternoon.

The 55-year-old Mururapa man was thrown from the cab of the laden logging truck when it rolled on the Tauranga side of the Athenree Gorge just before midday. He was treated by ambulance staff at the scene before being taken to hospital.

The truck is now clear of the road, but traffic has been reduced to one lane. A section of State Highway 2 has been closed and a log loader brought in from the Port of Tauranga so that the logs can be removed.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident.

SH2 is expected to be closed for around three hours. Diversions are in place at Waihi Beach Rd, Wilson Rd, Seaforth Rd, Emerton Rd and Anthenree Rd.
