Car crash near Whenuakite

There are reports of a vehicle on its side after it rolled while driving along the Tairua-Whitianga Rd near Whenuakite this morning.

Northern Fire Communications shift manager Osmond says there were no injuries following the crash which occurred just before 11.25am.

“One car rolled blocking a lane and they’re just wanting on tow trucks now,” says Scott. “There were no injuries and was quite minor.

“A crew from Hahei were dispatched because there was an oil spill leaking on the road.”

It is believed the vehicle involved was a campervan but Scott was unable to confirm if this was the case.

Traffic is now down to one lane along the Tairua-Whitianga Rd and while the cause of the crash is yet to be determined, heavy rains this morning have made roads in the district very slippery.

SunLive will update this story once more information is available.
