Driver injured in Quinney's crash
Man cut from wreckage after vehicle hits trees
A male aged in his 60s was airlifted to hospital yesterday afternoon by the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter.
The sole occupant of the vehicle was driving near Quinney's on State Highway 6 when his vehicle left the road and rolled before crashing into a fence and trees.
The driver needed to be cut from his vehicle by fire crews and was then treated at the scene by the helicopter's onboard Intensive Care Paramedic for his injuries.
He was flown to Nelson Hospital's Emergency Department in a stable condition for further treatment and assessments.
The crash is the third serious road accident in the region in the past week, following collision that killed 22-year-old Nelson chef Shea Ketish Narayan-Laing on Nelson's Wakefield Quay on Thursday, and a crash at Mariri on Saturday that left a Richmond man with serious injuries.
Is the region better served by having multiple events over one weekend or spread out throughout the year?Related story: (See story)
