Four people have been injured after a car left the road and smashed through a fence near Kirwee this morning.

Inspector Rick Jury said emergency services rushed to the scene about 4.20am on West Coast Rd, a few kilometres east of Kirwee.

"It was a single vehicle crash, and it looks like four people have been involved. It went off the road and through a fence as far as I believe," Jury said.

He said at least one occupant appeared to be moderately to seriously injured, while the others were treated for minor injuries.

A St John ambulance spokesman said at least two people had been transported to Christchurch Hospital with moderate injures.

Jury said the road was open and emergency services had left the scene.
