1 comment


A woman died in a crash in the Far North last night.   Just after 8.00pm police and emergency services were alerted to the crash on Whangaroa Road, Kaeo approx 1klm north of the intersection with State Highway 10.   The sole vehicle involved failed to take a sharp bend before crashing down a bank and into a tree.   The driver, a local 73 year old female, died at the scene. The passenger, who was wearing a seatbelt, suffered only minor injuries.   Police serious crash investigators are working to determine the cause of the accident but initial enquiries suggest that weather conditions and alcohol may be a factor.
