"A car is on its side down the bank about 150m up Paradise Valley Rd," a reporter at the scene said.

"Medics, police and fire are here, I think they've already got one person out of the car."

A St John Ambulance spokeswoman said the driver of the car suffered minor injuries and was taken to Rotorua Hospital in a comfortable condition.

No one else was hurt in the crash and the road was re-opened a short time later.
