An Indian family escaped with only minor bruising after crashing into a ditch on Mt Cook Rd yesterday.

Senior Constable Les Andrew said the driver, accompanied by his wife and two children, hit gravel on a bend at around 4.30pm.

The driver lost control, crossing the centre line and rolling into a ditch. The wife suffered bruising from her seatbelt and the car was written off.

The family carried on south to Queenstown with other members of their group.
