Woman injured after four-car crash


A woman has been injured after the driver of another car had a “medical event” causing a four-car pile up outside KFC this afternoon.

The accident happened around 5pm on Beach Rd when a man lost control of his vehicle during the medical event, ploughing into three cars and finishing up on the grass outside KFC. One of the cars involved was parked, while the other two had passengers on board.

Nelson Fire Station officer Craig Davies says one woman was injured in the crash and she has been taken to Nelson Hospital.

He couldn’t say the condition of the driver who suffered the medical event or the injured woman.

He says Beach Rd has been reopened.
