Sunday, 28 April 2019 – 2:57pm [Bay of Plenty of Multiple Fatalities]

Police can confirm that there have been multiple fatalities following the crash near Ohakuri Road this morning.

An SUV and a van have collided and a significant amount of debris has been strewn all over the road.

At the moment it is unclear how many people have been killed due to the catastrophic nature of the crash and therefore it will take some time for emergency services to establish exactly how many people have been involved in the crash.

The Disaster Victim Identification team (DVI) have been called in to assist with the investigation.

At least one person suffering critical injuries was air-lifted to hospital this morning.”

Catastrophic head-on collision between van and SUV

A van and SUV collided and a significant amount of debris has been strewn all over the road, police reported.

“It appears, for whatever reason, one of the vehicles has crossed the incorrect side of the road on a moderate bend,” Inspector Brent Crowe told media.

“To describe the scene behind us as a complete tragedy would be an understatement.”

“Our main priority, our main focus at the moment is to ensure we extract the deceased, look after the deceased and take care of them for their families,” he said.

Stuff reported:

The crash comes less than a month after five family members [including three schoolgirls] were killed on Tirohanga Rd, about 15 kilometres away.

A west-bound Ford Falcon had crashed into a gum tree tree, killing all occupants, except 11-year-old Isaac Morgan-Rangikataua, who was seriously injured.

His father, cousin and three school-age sisters all died at the scene.

Bad Stretch of Road

Fiona Mead, a Rotorua resident, who has been driven by her son along SH 1 in Atiamuri regularly told the Rotorua Daily Post that the “ground zero” was a “bad stretch of road”.

Some of the corners are blind, and the right-hand turns were particularly treacherous. “You have to be quick because the cars come quickly.”

Shontel Van Zyderveld,  another local, said she previously used the highway “all the time”.

“But since these accidents, I haven’t used it once. There has just been so much tragedy on that highway, I’m really not willing to use it at the moment.”

“I can never recall so many fatal accidents happening in such a short space of time in that area (South Waikato, Atiamuri, Tokoroa),” a former resident said.
