No charges af­ter beach crash

The Northern Advocate - - Local News -

No charges have been laid but po­lice con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate a crash on Baylys Beach late last month. Four peo­ple were flung from a ve­hi­cle that rolled mul­ti­ple times and po­lice said they were lucky not to be crushed. Two peo­ple with se­ri­ous in­juries were flown to Whanga¯rei Hos­pi­tal by the North­land res­cue he­li­copter af­ter the crash 4km south of the Baylys Beach set­tle­ment. Ini­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tions have led po­lice to be­lieve al­co­hol and speed were con­tribut­ing fac­tors. Se­nior Sergeant Ian Row said it was lucky those thrown from the ve­hi­cle were not crushed by the rolling ve­hi­cle.
