The cause behind why a vehicle rolled into Pilot Bay at Mount Maunganui yesterday remains under investigation.
Emergency services were called to the incident beside Salisbury Wharf just after midday.
A police media spokesperson says the car was seen to go over the rocks and into the water.
"The occupants were helped out of the vehicle. They didn’t receive any injuries, but were in shock."
The vehicle was towed out of the water at around 1.30pm.
“Police are still working to find a cause and investigation is ongoing.”
