Car crashes into boulder

Emergency services were called after a car crashed into a rock in the early hours of the morning on the Otago Peninsula.

A Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesman said a car hit a boulder on Highcliff Rd about 12.35am this morning.

The crash was very minor, but cracked open the oil tank at the bottom of the car, he said.

A crew from St Kilda Station attended and assisted with the clean up, the spokesman said.
