A construction roller has gone over the side of a bank in Queenstown, leaving a man with moderate injuries.

A Southern Fire and Emergency spokesman said a fire crew attended the incident on Kingston Rd and had extracted one person from the roller.

St John South Island region spokesman Gerard Campbell said they received the call-out about 4.15pm.

"There's one male patient with moderate injuries and he's been airlifted to Dunedin Hospital."
