A car veered off the road before crashing, ending up on its roof on rocks near Otago Harbour this morning.
A Fire and Emergency New Zealand (Fenz) spokeswoman said the car left Portobello Rd and came to rest near the water about 9.15am.
The one person in the vehicle was out of the car by the time crews arrived, she said.
Crews from Willowbank and St Kilda attended and St Kilda stayed to assist with traffic and first aid, she said.
Fenz crews used a ladder to reach the wreckage.
A police spokeswoman said only one car was involved and it did not become submerged.
The driver was being checked by St John, but was not believed to be seriously injured.
Police Senior Sergeant Anthony Bond, of Dunedin, said a 22-year-old woman was the sole person involved in the crash.
She was driving from Dunedin towards Portobello, but her car slipped off the road because it was wet.
Fortunately, the water level was low due to it being low tide, Snr Sgt Bond said.
The vehicle flipped over onto its roof and landed on to the rocks.
The driver had minor injuries and was treated at the scene by St John, he said.
