Witnesses sought to Cambridge crash

Three vehicles were involved in a serious crash near Cambridge on Friday 13.

Police investigating a serious accident on State Highway 1 are appealing for witnesses.

Emergency services were called to the crash on SH1, Karapiro, at 11.30pm on Friday 13.

Police are turning to the public to help in identifying the driver of a white/pearl coloured Honda Integra.

“The vehicle is believed to be a later model that was clipped by the alleged offending vehicle prior to the main impacts,” says a post on the Waikato Police Facebook page.

“This occurred near the intersection with Hickey Road. The driver of that vehicle is believed to be a male Indian, aged around early 30's, average build/height, clean cut hair, beard.

“At this stage there is no indication that this driver has any liability but we need to speak with him.”

His vehicle will be missing the casing of the wing mirror, says police.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
