"Southern motorway reopened"
At approximately 4:50pm this evening there was a crash between a truck and a car southbound on the Southern Motorway near the Mountain Road overbridge.
While Police were talking to the offending driver about the crash, he ran away.
Following this, as a safety precaution Police had to close the motorway to southbound traffic at around 6pm.
The man was taken into Police custody at around 6:50pm and the motorway has now reopened.
Police thank motorists for their patience.
