Motor vehicle crashes dominate weekend’s criminal activities

Police attended two car crashes resulting in considerable damage to the vehicles involved, on Sunday.

In a statement, police said one of the drivers was admitted to hospital for observation due to injuries sustained. Police were called about the first crash at 4.35pm when a car demolished a power pole on the main road at Ngatipa, forcing traffic to be diverted.

A few hours later, traffic was again diverted at Avatiu when a truck ran into the rear of another truck parked beside the main road (near Avatiu harbour). Police have sought blood specimens from these drivers, for analysis.

Efforts to get additional comments and an update on their investigations proved futile yesterday.

Police are also looking into a stabbing incident, reported earlier on Sunday.

“An emergency call was made at 10.47am as a result of a man sustaining a deep wound to the abdomen area. Investigations are proceeding while a woman has been arrested and charged over the incident.”

Over the weekend, Police also attended to disputes, and removed keys from several drivers.
