Two people have been injured after a vehicle crashed through a fence in Tauranga overnight.

Emergency services were called to the crash on Oropi Road at about 10.45pm.

A police spokesperson says police received reports that a car had crashed into a fence.

“Two people were injured. We don't have details of the injuries but they're not thought to be serious.”

A reporter who attended the crash says the vehicle had rolled before crashing through the fence.

Police are still investigating a crash.

Obviously these young guys do NOT know how to drive?? Ignorance is bliss?? A young man was killed nearly 2 years ago in a car accident and these guys still haven't learnt!! It's pointless venting though as they probably cannot read also!! Too too many young people dying on our roads- through speed and alcohol etc etc.

Oropi Road is great to drive on.If you know how to drive properly.

Fence must have been in the way

Yet another single car crash. Let me guess, speed, inattention, alcohol (allegedly). These people need to pay for the cost of the emergency services. Maybe that would act as a wake up call.
