Car runs off road

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

CLOSE CALL: On Sun­day af­ter­noon emer­gency ser­vices in Toko­roa were called to this one-car crash.

The ac­ci­dent at around 3pm in­volved a sta­tion­wagon which ran off the road on SH32 south of Toko­roa.

At least one oc­cu­pant of the car had to be taken to hos­pi­tal for treat­ment.

Two fire ap­pli­ances were called out from Toko­roa. How­ever, due to com­mu­ni­ca­tions er­rors they were sent to the ac­ci­dent via Jack Henry Rd and a forestry road adding sev­eral min­utes to their re­sponse time.

Thank­fully the car’s sev­eral oc­cu­pants did not need fire­fighter as­sis­tance to get out of their car.

The cause of the ac­ci­dent is not yet known though it had been rain­ing be­fore to the crash.
