Sud­den end to hol­i­day

The Northland Age - - Local News -

A Ger­man fam­ily’s North­land hol­i­day came to a very sud­den end on Thurs­day when their bor­rowed camper­van and a car col­lided on SH1 just south of Kawakawa.

The crash, at Waiomio at about 5.30pm, was at­tended by the po­lice, St John and the Kawakawa Fire Brigade, but no one was se­ri­ously hurt.

The Ger­man fam­ily were un­der­stood to have been vis­it­ing their daugh­ter, who is on a study ex­change in New Zealand, and bor­rowed the camper­van from her host fam­ily.

Wit­nesses said rub­ber left on the road by the other ve­hi­cle sug­gested it had been on the wrong side of the road.

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
