Emergency services were called to the crash on West Coast Rd in Arthur's Pass about 1.50pm on Thursday.

A rescue helicopter and St John crews had also been sent to the crash, the spokesman said.

She said a man, who was understood to be the sole occupant of the truck was not trapped.
A St John spokesman said the man was flown to Christchurch Hospital with moderate injuries.
The bridge had been reduced to one lane with a temporary speed limit of 30 kilometres per hour following the crash.
