Crash on State Highway 1 north of Waikanae leaves one person seriously injured

One person has been seriously injured after being thrown from a car that rolled on State Highway 1 on the Kāpiti Coast.

Police said emergency services responded to the incident involving a single car about 8pm in Te Horo, between Te Hapua Rd and School Rd.

There were five people in the car, and one was thrown out by the crash. That person was in a serious but stable condition, and had been taken to Palmerston North Hospital, police said.

"The vehicle doesn't look like it has collided with anything, as far as we can tell."

Police earlier said one person had been trapped in the car, which had to be rolled back on to its wheels.

Two other occupants suffered moderate injuries, and one minor injuries.
