A man and woman had to be cut out of their car after it rolled on a corner in Auckland's Kohimarama this afternoon.

Photos of the scene show a yellow car on its side on the footpath. The roof of the car is cut in half.

An Auckland police spokesman said the car had lost control when going around the corner of Kohimarama and Kepa Rds.

A Fire Service spokeswoman said fire attended the crash and cut the man and woman out of the car. They were taken to hospital by St John.
