Multiple people have been injured and another person freed from a car in separate Bay of Plenty crashes overnight.

The car crashed into a wooden post in Rotorua's Kmart carpark on Amohau St about 7.10am, a police spokeswoman said.

The sole female occupant suffered an injury to her ankle, she said.

A Fire and Emergency NZ spokesman said the person was trapped in the car and crews worked to remove them.
