Vehicle rolls on Papamoa Beach
A vehicle has been left on Papamoa Beach after crashing just off Taylors Reserve.
A police spokesperson says they were called to the beach at around 5.25am.
“There was a report that a jeep crashed just off Taylors Reserve.
“Council were going to remove the vehicle this morning, sounds like no one was inside and it had been left there.”
"We got called to an upturned vehicle on Pāpāmoa Beach this morning to help ensure no engine oil, diesel or rubbish entered the water," says a post on the Bay of Plenty Regional Council Facebook page.
"The driver got a good, and expensive, reminder that Pāpāmoa Beach is not made for joyriding."
