Car chase across the region

An off-and-on car chase across the region was just one of a number of road incidents that kept Wairarapa police and other emergency services busy on Sunday and Monday.

A female youth offender pulled over by police in Upper Hutt on Sunday, drove off with police in pursuit until they lost sight of her vehicle.

The young woman was then involved in a short mid afternoon shoplifting spree in Featherston and Greytown before a second pursuit began after she was spotted by local police on SH2 in Carterton.

However, she was able to evade police again in Pongaroa, and her criminal contiki tour continued until Woodville, where a Palmerston North police officer saw the vehicle and apprehended the two occupants with the assistance of a police dog unit.

The female offender is due in Youth Court on charges of shoplifting, aggravated assault, and driving charges.

Single car crash

Police also responded to a one-vehicle crash on SH2 near Mount Bruce at 7pm on Sunday.

Wellington Free Ambulance [WFA] confirmed there were two patients in a mild condition, one of whom was transported to Wairarapa Hospital where they were treated and discharged that night.

Two two-vehicle crashes

A two-vehicle crash in Masterton on Monday morning temporarily blocked parts of the road but was quickly cleared up.

The incident was reported to police at about 6.30am on Herbert St, and a police spokesperson said there were no injuries sustained.

A second two-vehicle crash was reported to police on Monday shortly after 1pm.

The crash on Ngaumutawa Rd was quickly cleared up, and no injuries were reported.

Another one-car crash

Emergency services later attended another crash, this time in Martinborough shortly before 4pm. Police were on the scene of the single-vehicle crash on Jellicoe St before an ambulance arrived and transported one person to hospital to be checked for injuries.
