Another American Student Killed in New Zealand

Posted by te2ataria on February 19, 2010

Edited by D.H. and TEAA

The 34th Foreigner to be killed in NZ in 2010, the 1,796th since Jan 2000

Meada Rose Wood’s only mistake in life was choosing to study in New Zealand!

Miss Wood, 28, an American student was killed violently after a truck crashed into her car near Opiki School. She died in agony at the scene, the intersection of  State Deathway 56 (Opiki Rd), and Tane and Poplar roads about 2.30pm yesterday, a report said. The truck driver was unhurt.

“Ms Wood had completed her [veterinary] studies last year at Massey University and was due to graduate later this year.” The report said.

Police Senior Sergeant Nick Dobson said after the woman’s body was removed from her car, he blessed the scene. [Yah! That would  make her very happy, indeed!]

[ It’s not known whether Senior Sergeant Nick Dobson said that tongue in cheek.]

The force of the collision pushed the victim’s car across the centre line and crashed it into a ditch on the opposite side  of the highway about 20km southwest of Palmerston North.

Twice More Likely to Get Killed in New Zealand in 2010

If you are planning to travel to New Zealand, don’t. Why? Because you are at least twice more likely to get killed here in 2009-10 tourist season than last year!

Celia Kelly, 22, a University of Washington Student vacationing in New Zealand was killed and three others were seriously injured in a head-on collision on State Highway 1 at Maroa, 20km north of Taupo on March 15, 2009.

This year more Americans will be killed in New Zealand than in Iraq, PROBABLY!
