"Northland Police appealing for witnesses following serious crash in Kaingaroa"

Attribute to Acting Detective Inspector Lloyd Schmid, Northland CIB:

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward as the investigation continues into a serious crash, following a fleeing driver incident near Kaingaroa in the Far North on Saturday 5th January, 2019.

Shortly after 5.30pm, the driver of a dark blue Nissan Cefiro vehicle lost control near Kaingaroa on State Highway 10 and hit a steel barrier on the side of the road, before colliding with an oncoming vehicle.

The crash occurred after the driver allegedly failed to stop for Police a short time earlier near Awanui.

The female driver was subsequently arrested and charged with failing to stop for Police.

Two other occupants in the vehicle were seriously injured, while two people in the oncoming vehicle also received minor injuries.

Acting Detective Inspector Lloyd Schmid says Police want to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or was at the scene as part of our ongoing investigation.

“We’re aware that members of the public stopped at the scene to offer assistance to those injured and we would like to speak to them as part of our enquiries.

“Anyone who has any information about this crash and is yet to speak to Police is asked to contact Kaitaia Police on (09) 408 6500.”
