Crash between logging truck and ute
Drivers manage to walk away from crashANNA WILLIAMS
A 58-year-old man was able to walk away after a fully loaded logging truck ploughed into the ute he was driving near Renwick, in Marlborough, today.
Police said it appeared the man pulled out from Rapaura Rd to turn right on to SH6 into the path of the logging truck driving towards Renwick.
After the collision, the driver of the Waimea Contract Carriers logging truck veered to the right of SH6, narrowly avoiding a head-on collision with an oncoming truck.
Constable Tamati Te-Tua, of Blenheim, said witnesses saw the ute stop at the intersection, but then pull out in front of the truck.
