Woman killed in road crash

Woman killed in road crash


A woman has died in a fatal crash on State Highway 30 at Te Teko this morning.

The crash occurred at approximately 8.30am. Initial enquiries suggest that the car which was heading towards Whakatane crossed the centerline and collided with a truck and trailer unit heading towards Rotorua.

A woman in her 50s from the Whakatane area was the sole occupant of the car. She was thrown from the vehicle and despite concerted first-aid efforts she died at the scene.

No further details about the woman will be released until family have been advised and formal identification has taken place.

The road remains closed as a diesel spill from the crash is cleaned up and the vehicles are removed.

A serious crash investigation is underway and anyone with information about this crash is asked to contact Whakatane Police on 07 308 5255.
