Car plunges down hill
A woman is fighting for her life after her car plunged 100 metres down a steep South Taranaki hill about 4am yesterday. Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter pilot Lance Burns said the woman’s car had stopped on a flat spot about two-thirds down the hillside on Waitotara Valley Rd. Paramedics managed to carry the woman, in her 20s, to a paddock below. From there she was taken to Wellington Hospital with serious to critical injuries.
