Police Road Fatality Reports [Extreme Censorship in Effect]

  • No road fatality reports allowed by police today, as of posting, despite several serious crashes reported locally.
  • Tuesday’s UPDATE: Only six of the road/rail fatality reports allowed by police since yesterday, as of posting, despite numerous serious crashes reported locally.
  • Based on insider information, statistical models and local news, We believe about 900 people were killed and 8,000 others seriously/critically injured on NZ suicide roads in 2016; however, only 328 fatalities were reported last year.

oo-8-oo-

IF we didn’t write this, at least five more people killed on NZ roads would remain statistically resurrected!

Will this force NZ’s Monstrosity of Transport (Minitru) into cancelling the latest five cases of statistical resurrections?

Australian family decimated within minutes of arriving in New Zealand

Road massacre in Huntly: Australian violinist and two stepsons killed, while his partner and her daughter barely escaped death

The Australian family decimated in the deadly car crash had just arrived in New Zealand on Monday and had been on their way to visit relatives for the holidays.

Australian violinist Stephen Phillips and his two stepsons, aged 12 and 14, were killed instantly when the [most probably defective] rental car they were travelling in collided with a truck on State Highway 1 at Huntly on Monday afternoon.

The boys’ mother was rushed to hospital in a critical condition along with her daughter Tessa, 9, who barely survived the crash.

“There’s bits of car scattered hundreds of metres from where the crash happened. It’s everywhere, as far as the eye can see,” said an eye-witness.

Phillips, 54, was First Violinist with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) and his partner, Belinda Williams, 40, was a casual guest musician for the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and played the viola.

“Stephen had been a member of the QSO since 1987 and Belinda has played with the QSO since 2002.”   http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/84441039/ages-released-of-three-males-who-died-in-huntly-crash

Eleven reported road fatalities so far on Queen’s Birthday Weekend, and counting

Posted by te2ataria on June 6, 2016

Three more killed in crash near Dargaville – road toll jumps to 11 on Queen’s Birthday Weekend

The number of road fatalities reported [leaked] on Queen’s Birthday Weekend has now climbed to at least 11, after three more people were killed near Dragaville, in Northland.

“A 4WD carrying six people crashed into a tree at about 6.45pm on the corner of Bayleys Coast Rd and Baylys Basin Rd, near Dargaville”, killing at least three of the occupants, with three others sustaining serious (!) injuries, said Fire Communications shift manage.

This is said to be the most deadly Queen’s Birthday Weekend since 1989, when 13 road fatalities were reported.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/80772601/New-Zealand-roads-kill-11-during-long-weekend

The manipulated road toll for previous years were as follows.

The Queen’s Birthday toll on 2012 saw seven reported road kills, and the released figure for 2009 was 10 fatalities.  [Statistically, the road toll is 12 for the long weekend.]

In 2013, the road toll during Queen’s Birthday Weekend was completely suppressed by the authorities. In fact, a strict campaign of news censorship by the police/government meant that only 253 road fatalities would be reported during the entire year.

French victims survive Australia, only to lose at ‘NZ Roulette’

Remi Morilleau, 27, was killed in a three-car crash in Northland on Christmas Day just hours after arriving in New Zealand.

The victim, a native of Nantes, had arrived in Auckland from Melbourne with his partner on Christmas Day.

“The tourist’s partner and the driver of another car suffered serious injuries and two children were treated for minor injuries after the crash on State Highway 1 near Whangarei about 6.45pm on Christmas Day,” according to a report.

They lasted about 4 hours from arrival, travelling just 160km in New Zealand.
.

RIP. Frenchman Remi Morilleau, 27, of Nantes, who was killed on his first day of a holiday in New Zealand, was reportedly the son of the Bernard Morilleau, the mayor of Sainte-Pazanne, a small town southwest of Nantes. He was with his partner, driving a rental car between Oakleigh and Puwera on SH1 when his life was cut short. They had survived a holiday in Australia, only to lose at NZ Roulette.

The victim’s partner was seriously injured, but her injuries were probably not The victim’s partner was seriously injured, but her injuries were probably not life-threatening, police said.

The crash occurred just north of where an Englishman was killed in a head-on collision near the intersection of Totara Rd and SH1 at Oakleigh on November 4, within 10 hours of arriving in NZ.

Based on the information received from our friends throughout the country and the blog’s statistical model, the moderators believe at least 1,280 crashes have occurred on NZ roads, resulting in about 40 fatalities and at least 650 injuries, since the official holiday road monitoring period began at 4pm on 24 December. 

[The perfidious police say only six people have been killed on the roads since Christmas Eve!!! According to their latest figures, only 321 people have died on the roads so far this year. In reality, the road toll is not much different from the 1980s when about 800 were killed each year. They have been doctoring the figures since to show much lower fatalities.]

WHY are so many overseas visitors killed on NZ roads?

Posted by te2ataria on September 29, 2015

How many of these cars end up being driven by overseas visitors?

“Australia sends written-off cars to NZ”

About 60 per cent of second hand cars imported from Australia are written-off, according to The New Zealand Transport Agency, says a report.

“In Australia a statutory write-off means the car has suffered damage so serious it can not be deemed roadworthy, or registered in that country again.”

Too difficult to hide death of “prominent” Americans in “News Islands”

Three holidaying Americans were killed in a “violent” collision with a truck west of Hamilton overnight, and a fourth victim, the 56-year-old male driver, was injured, Waikato Police has finally revealed.

The four U.S. visitors were prominent, well-known members of the Church of Latter Day Saints in the settlement of Richfield, and nearby Monroe, about 2.5 hours from Salt Lake City, said a report.

Ruth and Mitchel Peterson killed in New Zealand
Ruth Ann and Mitchell Peterson were violently killed in a collision with a truck  south of Hamilton, New Zealand.

An off-duty policeman on his way home was the first person to arrive at the crash scene at the intersection of SH39 (Kakaramea Rd) and Tuhikaramea Rd, police said.

The four victims in the car were all wearing seatbelts and it wasn’t a case of pointing the finger at tourists, the policeman was quoted as saying.

“That officer raised the alarm and began administering first aid until the arrival of paramedics. The crash is currently being investigated by a raft of teams including the Serious Crash and Commercial Vehicle Investigation Units who are working to confirm what has occurred,” he said.

“Initial indications are that a blue Toyota Highlander car with four persons on board heading north on SH39 has turned right, across the path of a southbound truck and trailer unit, at the intersection with Tuhikaramea Rd.”

US citizens husband and wife, Ruth-Ann and Mitchell PETERSON of Monroe in Utah and Tamara Garlick BARNETT of Richfield which is also in Utah, were killed, police said.

“The 56-year-old male driver, who was travelling with Mrs Barnett, was taken to Waikato Hospital by ambulance with moderate injuries. The driver of the truck was understandably shaken by his ordeal but uninjured in the crash.”

Tamara Garlick Barnett was killed  husband Richard sustained injuries
Tamara Garlick Barnett was also killed in the violent crash and her husband Richard sustained unspecified injuries.

Dr Barnett is an orthodontist and director of Barnett Orthodontics in Richfield, and together the couple have four children and four grandchildren. Mitchell Peterson was also a doctor in Richfield, practising optometry, said the report.

In February,  a family of four Chinese Americans were killed in a head-on collision with a logging truck north of Tokoroa. Warren Lee, 53, Aesoon Lee, 52, and their daughter 20-year-old Julia Lee were killed at the scene. Their son, Griffin Lee, 17, died later in hospital.
