Police are investigating the cause of a crash where a car has smashed into a fence.

The crash happened on Takitimu Drive, near the Waihi Road on-ramp.

A police media spokesperson says the crash happened at about 1.30pm.

"Police received reports of a car hitting a fence on Takitimu Drive, the vehicle and people in it reportedly left the scene.

"Police continue to make inquiries to locate those involved."

A reporter at the scene says police are interviewing witnesses to try and find out what happened.

"A witness told me that a car has spun out, slid backwards and slammed into a fence.

"You can tell it slid by the marks in the grass.

"The witness says all the occupants from the car fled from the scene when it crashed."

SunLive is working on getting more information from police.
