The crash blocked the two northbound lanes and traffic is building in both directions.

The two righthand lanes before Te Atatu Rd are blocked and Waka Kohtahi NZ Transport Agency is warning motorists to pass with care.

A car can be seen straddling two lanes just before the busy Te Atatu Rd offramp.

A witness to the crash said they “saw a person run across the other side of the motorway into oncoming traffic”.
