Wellington, Sept 14: Two Indians have been named among the victims of a car crash along Auckland's Muriwai beach, a media report said.

"The fact that the occupants have all been ejected from the vehicle would suggest that they may not have been wearing seatbelts, but this will be confirmed once the car has been examined" Inspector Trevor Beggs was quoted as saying.

Beggs added that based on witness information, police believed the car was travelling at speed along the water's edge.

"It's either struck an object or has hit sand. The vehicle has then flipped and rolled several times," he said.
