Traffic is backed up on Turret Road after a car crashed down a bank this afternoon.
Emergency services were called to the scene just before 3pm due to reports of a vehicle submerged in the water.
However, a police spokesperson says those initial reports were incorrect, and the car is only on the bank.
"Everyone is now out of the vehicle."
A SunLive reader who contacted the newsroom via Facebook says all three emergency services are present, with traffic backed up towards Turret Road.
She says it looks as though a car may have hit another vehicle coming towards Maungatapu, causing the crash.
Another caller says the crash looks to be just past the bridge on the Maungatapu side.
