Update: Hamilton triple-fatal

Attributable to Inspector Marcus Lynam, Waikato District Road Policing Manager:

Inquiries are ongoing into the fatal crash which killed three people on Mangaharakeke Road in Hamilton just after midnight on Sunday 11 November.

The male driver of the Holden Trax that the three deceased were passengers in was admitted to Waikato Hospital with moderate injuries.

He is being offered support and is helping Police with inquiries.

Police is not yet in a position to formally release the names of the three deceased.

The male driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash was also admitted to Waikato Hospital with moderate injuries.

He is believed to have driven down from Auckland, and Police continue to ask for anyone who witnessed a blue and grey Toyota Prada driving erratically or at speed late on Saturday or early Sunday, to come forward.

The driver of the Toyota is also helping Police with inquiries.

No charges have been laid at this stage.

CIB and the Serious Crash Unit are working to establish the circumstances of the crash.

"The investigation into the crash is complex, and is expected to take some time," Inspector Lynam says.

"We extend our condolences to the families involved, and have offered them support."
