A 29-year-old Tauranga man will appear in Tauranga District Court facing charges of careless driving after a crash last night, Sergeant Ben Gallagher has said.

Mr Gallagher said the man attempted to overtake another car when he lost control and landed in a paddock.

The man crashed off Ross Rd in Whakamarama about 9.30pm last night, he said.

He was not injured and alcohol was not a factor, Mr Gallagher said.
