A serious car accident occurred last night involving three cars at the intersection of State Highway 2 and Fairway Drive, Avalon. Six people were taken to hospital, one serious.
Emergency services attended the crash which occurred about 7pm. As a result of the accident the Kennedy Good Bridge remained closed till about 10pm, as the Police conducted an accident investigation.
Police are also seeking witnesses to the accident. Please call Detective Sergeant Steve Harwood at the Lower Hutt police station on 560-2674, if you can help.
Lower Hutt police said they received a call at 1.00pm after a passerby spotted a car with a man sitting on its roof in the harbour just north of Eastbourne.
A white Nissan Cefiro stationwagon had fallen more than two metres on to rocks near Days Bay Eastbourne.
The crash was caused by driver inattention and speed was not a factor.
The driver, in his 40s, was heading north along Marine Drive when he was distracted and his car left the road at a point before Days Bay. The driver got out of the upturned car himself with only a small cut or bruise on his face, and it is likely he will face charges.
