Three men have been taken to hospital after a car rolled into the sea in Nelson.

Police were called to the scene on Boulder Bank Drive, where a late model V8 Holden Adventure had left the gravel road, rolled several times and ended up in the sea.

Two of those taken to hospital are locals, and the third is from Tauranga - all of them are stable.

Sergeant Blair Hall said speed and alcohol were factors in the crash and it is lucky no one died.

He said the investigation is continuing and charges are likely.
