Serious crash on State Highway 16. A car with 3 children in the back pulled out of a driveway near the crest of a hill and collided with an oncoming car.

Another child who is thought to be aged around 4 years old is in a status one (critical) condition, with serious life threatening injuries.
The parents of the children have both been taken to North Shore Hospital. At this point their condition is not known. [Why not? Not enough sober doctors to do their round?] http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/crash-state-highway-16
