Emergency services responded to a car that rolled on State Highway 5 this afternoon.

A police spokesperson said police were called to the scene, located 15 minutes from the Napier turnoff, at 12.09pm.

A car had rolled between Rukumoana Rd and Ohurakura Rd and was on its roof when emergency services arrived.

Fire communications shift manager Chris Dalton said three appliances from Bay View and Napier attended the crash but no one was trapped in the vehicle.


The sole female occupant of the car was assessed by an off-duty paramedic and received moderate injuries, the police spokesperson said.

The southbound lane was blocked for a short period and members of the public assisted with traffic control before contractors placed traffic cones up further down the road to alert approaching traffic.
