A Fire and Emergency New Zealand (Fenz) spokesperson said the vehicle had left the road and ended up in a creek.

When Fenz crews found the car, the occupants had already exited and “no extraction was needed”.

A Gloriavale member confirmed to Stuff that three members were injured with at least one in hospital.

“All we know is he’s in the hospital, he is okay – we haven’t heard much else besides that,” they said.
