Road death toll grows

Posted by te2ataria on March 14, 2009

‘If one half New Zealand population were run over by fully laden logging trucks and trailers in 2009, the number of road kills recorded by Land Transport NZ would still be smaller than the total for 2008.’ —A Mr Wolfie Watcher

A22-year-old man, who was the front seat passenger in a Nissan Pulsar was killed when the car smashed into a power pole on Vaughan Road  in Rotorua at about 1.40am [March 13, 2009.]

The victim died at the scene possibly because it took the emergency services too long to move him, “while the back seat passenger suffered a broken leg and the 19-year-old driver escaped with only minor injuries.” A report said.

Nincompoop police said the possibility of live cables from power pole harming them, made it difficult for emergency services to free the men from the wreckage.

The above was the 2009 Road Death # 102 [at least]

Meanwhile, a 19-year-old man was killed after the car he was a passenger in hit a lamp post in the Horowhenua on State Highway 57, south of Shannon, March 13, 2009, a police infector with central police communications said.

The 21-year-old driver suffered minor injuries, the police infector said.

The above was the 2009 Road Death # 103 [at least]
