A car has flipped onto its roof following a collision with another vehicle on the Hibiscus Coast, Auckland.

According to a witness, the vehicle hit another car, causing it to flip on its top.

Witness Josh Chase wrote on Facebook: "The lady was driving along, hit the back end of the black Toyota and flipped it. Everyone that was around, including myself, ran down and helped her out and spun the car around so that people could still drive around.''

Mr Chase said the woman who was driving the car was fine, but "a bit shaken up.''

A photo of the vehicle was posted on Facebook by a passerby.

The crash happened late this morning on Whangaparaoa Road, Manly, just north of Auckland.

An office worker nearby said members of the public helped to get the elderly woman out of her car and into a nearby Harcourts building, where she was taken care of while emergency services were called.

A witness, who did not want to be named, said: "I was just sitting here and I saw the car fly up and onto its bonnet. I think she's just nicked a parked car.''

She said the driver seemed to be okay, but also in shock.
