Horror night on South Island roads

Alice Webb-Liddall

Three people are dead and another seriously injured after crashes in Dunedin and South Canterbury.

Two separate crashes involving a truck and a car have blocked highways in Dunedin and South Canterbury.

Three fatalities have been reported from the crashes, with one death at each scene. 

A man has since died in hospital from serious injuries sustained in the Dunedin crash. 

The Serious Crash Unit are investigating both crashes, and diversions have been created around the crash sites.
