Police are investigating a report of a man being thrown from a moving car on State Highway 2.
Emergency services were called to the incident, which happened near the intersection of Maketu Rd about 12.25pm, but most units have since been stood down, a police northern communications spokesman said.
The matter was understood to have been a domestic incident.
It was not clear if the man suffered any injuries, and if so, how serious they were, the spokesman said.
