A car crash on the Kapiti Coast north of Wellington has left a major road closed.

The car ran off the road at the northern end of Paekakariki Hill Rd at 4.35pm this afternoon.

Emergency services are attending. One person was in the car, but no update is available on their injuries.

Drivers are being asked to take alternative routes, as it is unknown how long the road will be closed.
