The accident scene

THE crash happened near Mangatuna School. Police, St John Ambulance and Fire Emergency NZ were not called to the scene.

A nearby resident who went to the scene said the man driving the vehicle was incredibly lucky not to have been seriously injured or worse.

“It’s quite unbelieveable really. The driver had left the scene when my husband came upon the accident.”
