Four people are injured after a car smashed into a restaurant in Rotorua.

A police spokesman said staff were called about 5.55pm to a two-vehicle crash on Fenton St near the intersection with Grey St.

“It appears one vehicle went through a window of a restaurant.”

A further statement said it appeared the injured people were from the vehicle.

A photographer at the scene said Fenton St was cordoned off and a car was inside Urbano Bistro.
