A spokesman said the car had collided with a wall.
Everyone was free and clear of the vehicle but one man was suffering chest injuries and shock.
He was treated by an ambulance crew while firefighters made the vehicle safe.
By 9am the road had been partially reopened, although one lane remained blocked off due to a petrol spillage.
