Only in New Zealand: Passengers walk to Auckland Airport

What does it take for New Zealand’s biggest airport to become paralysed?
Apparently, just an overturned truck!
“Frantic travellers rushing to catch flights abandoned their vehicles and started walking to Auckland Airport after a crashed truck completely blocked the main route to the airport from the north,” said a report.
It’s unclear what actually happened to the abandoned cars, if in fact the passengers were the drivers.
The truck rolled about 4.20pm on Tuesday, completely closing the southbound lanes for nearly two hours.
