A reporter at the scene said a boundary fence and what appeared to be a small structure had been mown over in the incident.

The impact of the crash had also wiped out a small power box and damaged a campervan on the neighbour's driveway, she said.

The occupants of the property declined to comment other than to say it had been a car that had crashed into their property and they had been up half the night. Residents in the area told the Bay of Plenty Times traffic often sped through the street and they wanted people to slow down.
