Lack of at­ten­tion on road

A fe­male pedes­trian was knocked un­con­scious and suf­fered a bro­ken pelvis when she was knocked over by a car while cross­ing Cardrona Val­ley Rd last Wed­nes­day.

Constable Aubury Martin said the woman looked the wrong way, failed to see an ap­proach­ing ve­hi­cle, stepped out and was struck. There was a sec­ond col­li­sion last week on State High­way 6 to Makarora.

Two ve­hi­cles went to over­take a third ve­hi­cle and one failed to see the other. Martin said there were no in­juries. ‘‘Al­ways check your mir­rors and blind spots be­fore at­tempt­ing to pass.

‘‘You may be pay­ing that much at­ten­tion to the road ahead that you fail to see the ve­hi­cle pass­ing your­self.’’
