A police spokesperson said the car was seen the wrong way round on Karamu Road in Hastings and failed to stop for police just after 12:30 p.m., fleeing Kenilworth Road.

It struck gravel at the base of the tracks, flew off and went over a fence, crashed into fruit bins and ended about 10 meters above the ground.

Fire and emergency spokesman Mike Wanoa said rescuers used ladders to reach the man in the vehicle and then freed him.

He was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Photos on the Hawke’s Bay Fire Facebook page show a vehicle buried in the stack of fruit bins and crews on ladders pulling a person out on a stretcher.
