A car has gone off the road this evening around the Rough River Bridge inland from Greymouth in a similar area which claimed the life of Tamati James Rae, 32 in 2017.

A spokesperson has confirmed no-one is trapped.

A coroner's inquest into Rae's death stated, had there been metal barriers rather than wooden, the crash may have been survivable.
