Woman injured in three-car crash
An elderly woman has been injured in a three-car crash on Rimu Rd in Paraparaumu this afternoon.
The woman was driving a white Suzuki hatchback when she pulled out of Coastlands mall at about 1pm, colliding with a south-bound Nissan Skyline.
Sergeant Sam Gilpin said the Nissan then appeared to have swerved in to an oncoming Audi, hitting it head on, and the elderly woman lost control of her car and drove into a tree.
Ambulance staff put a neck brace on the woman and were assessing her at the scene. Mr Gilpin said she was taken to hospital for observation.
Nobody else was injured in the crash.
Mr Gilpin said police were investigating the crash.
