NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 25/03/2017

Police can't find a car that plunged off a road into the sea in Christchurch or a person who was in it.

The car went off Main Road between Mulgans Track and Clifton Terrace on Saturday evening.

Inspector Hirone Waretini says the driver of a car is being treated in hospital.

It's believed one other person was in the car, and searchers have so far failed to find either the submerged vehicle or the person.

The search was called off on Saturday night and the police dive squad will arrive and resume the search on Sunday.

Traffic is being diverted while the serious crash unit investigates.
