Man seriously injured in crash

A man was taken to Waikato Hospital with a serious head injury last night after a car crashed through a fence and into a shed on the outskirts of Hamilton.

Acting Inspector Steve Kose from the Northern Police Communications centre said the crash happened on Peacockes Rd, just before 8pm.

Two males were believed to be in the vehicle when it crashed but one of the men attempted to run from the scene.

Mr Kose said the second man remained with the vehicle and was understood to be "bleeding from the head".
