Crash at Whakatu Estate intersection


Police are attending a crash scene at the Whakatu Estate intersection, it is believed a motorcycle is involved.

A man at the scene, who did not wish to be named, says a person was being taken away by Ambulance.

“Somebody was lying on the ground and paramedics were attending to him, he had a helmet on.”

Traffic has slowed to a trickle along Main Road Stoke and Elms St.

A three car crash occurred at the same intersection in May this year when a car pulled out of Elms St in the Wakatu Estate and was hit side on from a second car travelling at about 80km per hour. A third car hit into the back of the second.
