A car is on its side in Greerton this afternoon.

A police media spokesperson says a car rolled and hit a power pylon on Oropi Road, near Chadwick Road.

"Police were notified about the crash just after 1pm. Two occupants of the car were checked by ambulance and are okay."

There were no blockages at the scene, says police.

A reporter at the scene says the vehicle has rolled, gouged the ground and crashed into a power pylon.

Power contractors and police are at the scene.

....that there have not been more like this on these curves. Probably better to hit a pylon than drop to the businesses metres below! On second thoughts, neither alternative is very attractive. Better to stay on the road.
