One person has minor injuries and traffic is backed up near Tauranga Harbour Bridge following a three car crash.
A police media spokesperson says one person sustained minor injuries during the crash.
"Southbound traffic was building up however one lane is now open."
A witness at the scene says it happened on State Highway 2 outside the Tauranga Bridge Marina.
"It looks as though it's a three car pile up. A ute has been hit from behind by a truck towing a trailer, and that vehicle has then been hit by a large tanker truck.
"Traffic is moving slowly in the area, and it's slightly blocking one lane so cars are going around.
"There's a bit of debris on the road, but everyone is out of their vehicles and no one looks hurt."
