A nose to tail accident involving five APEC security cars has ended in a New Zealand Army officer being stood down from duties.
The accident occurred during an official driver training exercise.
The Army officer was to be a driver for the Chinese delegation, but has been assigned to other duties.
Officially wet weather has been blamed for the accident. All five vehicles damaged in the accident have been repaired and are fully restored to take officials around the city.
