A driver has escaped without injuries after her car went down the bank at Ohope hill in Whakatane.

A police media spokesperson says ambulance staff and police were at the scene for a time yesterday afternoon.

“A car went down the bank on Ohope Road around 2pm. A female driver, the only occupant of the car, was fine.”

A tow truck is now being arranged by the driver to retrieve the vehicle from the bottom of the bank, says police.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
