Serious Crash in Rotorua

Serious Crash in Rotorua

Wednesday, 20 August 2014 - 10:46am


Police and emergency services are at the scene of a serious crash on SH30, Te Ngae Road, between Sala Street and Hamiora Place in Rotorua.

Early reports were that a single car had struck a power pole just before 10.00a.m. bringing three poles down onto the road outside Placemakers.
One person was initially reported as being trapped.

All occupants are now out of the vehicle, however one rear-seat passenger is reported to have sustained serious injuries and has been transported to hospital.

Contractors have isolated power to the scene which is being processed by the serious crash unit.

Traffic is down to one lane, eastbound, and there is significant disruption to traffic. Diversions are being arranged.

There is wide-spread flooding in the area; police are saying this may have contributed to the crash and urge motorists to take extra care and drive to the conditions.
