A reported car crash in North Canterbury today may have been a hoax.

Emergency services received reports of a two-car crash at Hawkeswood about 11am.

The Westpac rescue helicopter was sent to the scene.

However, a St John spokesman said neither police nor ambulance staff were able to locate the crash.

"It may have been a hoax, or if not, the vehicles had left the scene by the time we arrived," he said.

In another accident, a 29-year-old Blenheim woman crashed in Havelock, Marlborough, at 8.30am.

The Nelson-Marlborough rescue helicopter treated the woman for serious injuries at the scene.

Her 4-year-old son, a passenger in the vehicle, suffered moderate injuries.

Both were flown to Nelson Hospital.

Is the mayor correct to put libraries, pools and community facilities ahead of the Town Hall?

Absolutely, they're far more important

I think funds should be split between those facilities and the town hall

No, the Town Hall should be rebuilt first

Just demolish the Town Hall completely instead of rebuilding
