Fatal crash in Edgecumbe

Emergency services are at the scene of what appears to be a double fatal crash in Edgecumbe.

The crash happened about 11pm last night on Main St in Edgecumbe and at least one person, possibly two, have been killed.

A Daily Post reporter and photographer at the scene said it appeared a white car had hit a tree.

Police, fire and an undertaker's vehicle were at the scene until the early hours of this morning.

The Daily Post reporter said tarpaulins had been put up around the crash scene and it looked as though emergency services were cutting free the bodies from the wreckage.

Family members of those involved in the crash had begun gathering at the scene and were visibly upset.

Police were unable to comment and no further details were known
