A car is on its side on State Highway 2 near Te Puna Quarry Rd.

A reporter at the scene said a car was lying vertical on its passenger side in a ditch on the side of the road, outside Parkland Produce.

The reporter said an ambulance and three police cars were in attendance.

Traffic was flowing but slow moving, especially heading towards Tauranga.


A policewoman at the scene said it appeared the car had veered off State Highway 2 and down a 2m bank onto a drive way.

The driver of the vehicle had minor injuries.
