A car was left standing vertically on its front-end in Christchurch following a crash on State Highway 76 this evening.
The small red car lodged itself in the median barrier between both lanes of the highway.
Incredibly, no one was injured in the crash, a Fire and Emergency spokesman said.
The crash resulted in the closure of SH76 near the Wrights Rd overpass, NZ Transport Agency first reported at 7pm.
However, by 8.40pm the crash had been cleared and the road reopened to motorists.
