Investigation continues

Three 19-year-old women have all been discharged from hospital after the car they were in ploughed into a camping ground.

A hospital spokesperson from Wellington Hospital and another from Wairau Hospital confirmed this morning they were all released within a few days of accident, which occurred about 12.20am Tuesday, March 11 on Rapaura Rd/State Highway 62 in front of the Spring Creek Holiday Park.

St John Marlborough territory manager Murray Neal said one of the women was flown to Wellington Hospital in a serious condition with chest and leg injuries.

The two other women were taken to Wairau Hospital. One sustained head injuries while the other had multiple arm fractures.

The three teens were trapped in a Mazda car, which had flipped onto its side and come to a stop lodged between trees and scrub.

Blenheim volunteer firefighters cut the teens from the car.

A police spokesman said the cause of the accident was being investigated by a serious crash investigator.

The car had been heading toward the SH1 intersection in the 70kmh zone when it appeared the driver lost control on a bend.
