The Mayoral Drive is partially blocked after an accident at the intersection of Greys Ave.

St John spokeswoman Beverley Tse said three ambulances were called to the scene at 9.35.

Mayoral Drive was partially blocked at the intersection with Grays Ave, police said.

"The major accident unit will examine the scene so that the public is asked to avoid the area."

An on-site witness said a CityLink red bus appeared to be turning from Mayoral Drive to Greys Ave when it struck a post on the corner.

A man can be seen on a stretcher in an ambulance, she said.

Fire, ambulance and police were all on site and a screen was put up to block people's sight on the accident, she said.
