The single-vehicle crash occurred at the highway's intersection with Te Kowai-Foulden Rd just before 1pm yesterday.

The highway was closed briefly as cranes removed the pool to a nearby cane paddock and turned the car upright.
No one was injured.
EMERGENCY services are on scene at a single-vehicle crash.

Police say the intersection is closed and is asking people to take an alternative route.
