Vehicle found empty after Makorori crash
Emergency services were called to Makorori hill in the early hours of Sunday morning after a car left State Highway 35 and crashed down a bank.
It happened at around 1.40am.
Rescuers climbed about five metres down the steep bank to reach the car.
“There was no one in the vehicle when we arrived,” a senior firefighter said.
“The car hit some trees and that stopped it from going further down the bank.”
Police have an inquiry under way.
