The exact reason as to what caused a car to fall from a transporter truck on Hewletts Road Thursday morning is not yet known.
The incident happened just before 10am and caused some delay and blockages to commuters.
Western Bay of Plenty road policing manager acting Senior Sergeant Wayne Hunter says the reason for the accident is not known to police.
“A truck carrying wrecked cars had one fall off. As this was not a crash, police did not deal with this matter.”
A caller to the 0800 SUNLIVE news hotline who was at the scene at the time says no one was injured.
"There are wrecked cars and one of the cars was upside down in the middle of the intersection.”
