Add a comment

Three people have been taken to hospital with minor injuries after a crash on Turner Rd, Whakamarama.

Emergency services were called to the crash just before the intersection with State Highway 2
about 5.30pm yesterday.

Sergeant Wayne Hunter said two elderly people were heading towards the state highway when a woman in her mid 40s came around a narrow corner on the wrong side of the road and collided with them head on.

Alcohol was suspected to have been a factor.

Both cars were extensively damaged and had to be towed away.
