One person has died after a three-vehicle collision in Waikato earlier today.
Police were alerted to the crash on Paeroa Kopu Rd (SH26) at Komata about 3.32pm.
“Police can now confirm one person has died,” a spokesperson said in a statement this evening.
“Motorists are asked to continue to avoid the area as diversions are in place.”
A St John spokesperson said earlier that three ambulances and a helicopter responded to the scene of the crash.
“Our ambulance crews have treated two patients, one in a minor condition and the other in a moderate condition.
“The patient in moderate condition [was] airlifted to Waikato Hospital.”

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
