Car crashes into fence outside Tongan church in South Auckland

Members of the Tuingapapai church at Favona Road, Mangere were surprised this morning after they arrived at the church and found a car had crashed into the church’s fence.

Some church members of the Free Wesleyan church were examining the crash when Kaniva News took photos at the scene.

It was not immediately clear if there were any injuries and when did the crash happen.

New Zealand Police have yet to release any information regarding the crash.

The latest release Police published on its website this afternoon at 12.35pm was about a fatal car crash in Levin in which a driver and two passengers had died this morning.

“Police were called to attend the crash at 12.20am between the car and a stationary truck and trailer unit, where the car was engulfed in flames”, it said.

Last Sunday a motorcyclist was killed after crashing on Buckland Road, in Mangere near the intersection of Royton Ave, after failing to stop.

That incident happened at a scene about 5 kilometres away from the crash at Tuingapapai this morning.
