Young American woman violently killed; her parents near-fatally injured in logging truck crash
A tourist who was violently killed after the rental she was a passenger in collided with a fully laden logging truck near Matamata was an American woman, travelling with her parents, police said.
The 22-year-old woman was instantly killed in the crash on Hopkins Rd, off State Highway 29 on Monday morning.
The turn-off is the main route to Hobbiton Movie Set, but Waikato police Senior Sergeant Gill Meadows said it was still unclear where the trio were travelling but it was possible they were heading to the well-known tourist attraction,
The woman’s 59-year-old father was driving the car while her 55-year-old mother was in the back seat. The pair were airlifted to Waikato Hospital both in a critical condition, Waikato police Senior Sergeant Gill Meadows said.
“I understand the mother was going into surgery today, that was the latest update that we had, but both were still in a very serious condition.”
“The impact of the crash was so intense that witnesses noticed the truck and trailer unit get airborne on impact before shunting the car about 20m down the road into a fence,” said a report.

How Many Killed?
More than 3,400 overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers and recent emigrants have lost their lives and about 18,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since year 2000.
Truth hurts New Zealand tourism. The average tourist would not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads. Therefore:
To protect the tourism industry, about two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Ministry of Transport [“Minitru”.] This week there’s been a near total news censorship…
About 2.7 million licensed drivers, half million or so unlicensed/unqualified drivers and more than one million tourists (per year) drive on New Zealand death roads.
A large number of the above drive a vehicle under the influence (illicit drugs, banned substances, prescription medication…), while intoxicated, fatigued or mentally unfit, resulting in inordinate numbers of fatalities and injuries. [Other factors for the carnage include deadly roads, road unworthy vehicles…]
IF you don’t publicly denounce the road carnage and the extreme violence perpetrated against the foreigners in New Zealand…
