More Chinese visitors killed on NZ Roads

Posted by te2ataria on January 13, 2012

God knows how many more, but the general view must be there are “too many” of them to worry about a few (!)

At least 4 more people were killed on South Island roads in less than a day.

Police have revealed only three of the fatal crashes on South Island roads in less than one day.

In the first of the three reported fatal crashes, two people believed to be Chinese and Taiwanese nationals were killed on State Highway 6 near Cromwell and two others were critically injured.

[NZ media do NOT follow up on the fate of victims that are critically injured in car crashes.]

The first victim was the driver of the sedan, a 29-year-old believed to be a Chinese national, who had been working in the Cromwell area, died at the scene.

The second victim was one of the passengers travelling in the same car who received critical injuries and was rushed to Dunedin Hospital. She died shortly after the collision in Cromwell, Central Otago, last night. She too is believed to be a Chinese national.

A witness to the a crash described the scene as “carnage”. Emergency services were called to the corner of State Highway 6 and State Highway 8B, on the outskirts of Cromwell, about 5.45pm after a sedan and courier van collided.

The driver of the sedan, a 29-year-old who had been working in the Cromwell area, died at the scene, while other occupants suffered critical and serious injuries.

“It didn’t look good; the car is not in a good way,” the witness said.

Ambulance Communications spokespeople said three helicopters were called to the scene, two from Dunedin and one from Queenstown, and were used to transport three people to Dunedin Hospital.

The other passenger was taken by ambulance to Dunstan Hospital, and the driver of the van had minor injuries.

“It is extremely serious,” an ambulance spokeswoman said.

Cromwell chief fire officer Steve Shaw said the sedan had its roof cut off because one person was trapped.

It appeared the van T-boned the sedan and the number of people seriously injured inside made it difficult for emergency services, he said.

“It was hard for the guys, but they did a fantastic job,” he said.

It is understood at least two of the car’s occupants were Chinese.

Shaw said crashes were common at that intersection and it needed to be reviewed.

“Because you are pulling across a main road, you just have to look. You have to be pretty attentive there,” he said.

Friends of the victims, also from China, who arrived at the scene after the crash said the people travelling in the car had been living in New Zealand and working at an orchard nearby. […]

[Crash No. 2] A truck driver died when his truck rolled north of Christchurch today, the third fatal crash on South Island roads in a day.

[Crash No. 3] This morning, a person died and another was injured after a car crashed into a power pole near Tussock Creek in Southland.       http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/6250530/Carnage-on-South-Island-roads

New Zealand Killing Fields: Carnage Intensifies

Posted by te2ataria on October 31, 2009

You need more than 9 lives to survive driving in New Zealand

You could be the best driver in the world; you could even take your car with you to New Zealand to avoid renting a fatally defective car there. But surviving the drunk, drugged and suicide-drivers on the country’s death roads is an entirely different matter.

DOUBLE FATAL CRASH: The Ford Econovan was seen being driven erratically before it crossed the centreline and smashed head-on into an oncoming car on a Hawke’s Bay bridge on State Highway 50 near Taradale early today . Photo: NZPA. Image may be subject to copyright!

On New Zealand Death Roads you could be killed by

  • The police giving chase to handbag snatchers
  • 50+ year-old women unhappy with their miserable lives, and back from a disappointing sex tourism trip
  • The average New Zealander driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, ecstasy and methamphetamines, especially ‘P’
  • 12 year-old drivers drunk out of their tiny, stupid brains

The van seen in the photo, carrying seven people, all between 16 and 19, was driven by a 16-year-old girl who had been drinking, police said.

It crossed the centreline and smashed head-on into an oncoming car on a Hawke’s Bay bridge on State Highway 50 near Taradale early today.

Three occupants, two males and a female, were catapulted from the van over the bridge into the Tutaekuri River about 15m below.

The two males, aged 19 and 17, were found dead in the shallow water under the bridge, while the woman was found on the riverbank with critical injuries.

An 18-year-old male passenger in the van was in a critical condition in the intensive care unit.

A 17-year-old female and a 17-year-old male were in a serious condition, and an 18-year-old male and a 17-year-old female were in a stable condition. More …

YOU could be the occupant(s) of the next on-coming car that a drunk, drugged New Zealand teen driver or an old suicide-driver smashes their vehicle into. Do you feel lucky? Well do ya?
