One of Hamilton's main streets is closed following a crash.

A police car is blocking Te Rapa Rd after a man suffered a medical event and crashed the car he was driving.

A police spokeswoman said officers were called to a house on the street to investigate a domestic incident. Before they arrived at the address a man, who had been involved in the dispute, had run away.

While police were at the house another man, who was driving down Te Rapa Rd, crashed.


The two incidents were unrelated, the spokeswoman said.

A reporter at the scene said police were taking photos near Target Furniture and a police car was parked beside the Streetwise coffee cart.
