An elderly man suffered serious injuries when a car flipped on State Highway 1 in Waikanae.

Police, fire and ambulance were called to the accident in the northbound lanes near New World Waikanae at 1.20pm.

Police communications spokesman Inspector Marty Parker said one vehicle pulled out in front of another. The car with the elderly male driver ended up on its side in the culvert of SH1.

Ambulance services said the man suffered serious injuries and was transported to Wellington Hospital.

He was in a stable condition, being assessed by the Emergency Department and was likely to be admitted, hospital spokesman Lindsay Davis said.

Traffic on SH1 was not impacted by the accident as both cars were off to one side of the road, Inspector Parker said.
