A person trapped after a car rolled off a North Canterbury road has been flown to hospital.
The car rolled and came off Hawarden-Waikari Rd, near the intersection of Princes St, about 8.44pm, a police spokesman said.
Southern fire shift manager Lyn Crosson said one person was extricated from the wreckage, after they were reportedly "heavily" trapped.
They then waited for a helicopter to arrive to transport the patient to hospital. It was unknown what injuries they sustained.
