A serious crash between a scooter and a car has forced the closure of parts of Auckland's Karangahape Rd.
The crash occured on K Rd between Pitt St and Howe St and westbound lanes on that section are closed. Eastbound lanes remain open.
Further north a broken down truck is blocking the left city-bound lane of State Highway 1 (Northern Motorway) at the end of the Silverdale on-ramp.
Motorists are warned to avoid the area or expect delays.
