Police seek ‘boyracer’ who failed to stop

A pregnant Featherston woman suffered whiplash and minor injuries after being forced to take evasive action to avoid another car early Wednesday morning.

Police want to talk to the driver of the other vehicle who failed to stop after the incident.

Wairarapa response manager Senior Sergeant Jennifer Hansen said the woman had been driving along Watt St, Featherston, at around 5.30am when a dark car came around the corner on the wrong side of the road.

“The [dark] car skidded out and the female driver took evasive action to avoid a crash but ended up crashing into a parked car anyway.”

The impact pushed the parked car on to the grass verge, and resulted in airbags deploying in the woman’s car, she said.

Police attended shortly before 6am, as did Wellington Free Ambulance paramedics, who treated the women for minor injuries and transported her to Wairarapa Hospital emergency department for a scan.

Hansen said early indications suggested the dark car, which looked like a “boyracer car”, may have been travelling at speed.

A post on social media also suggested the car may also have yellow lights and a loud muffler.

Anyone with information, or the driver of the dark car, should contact the Masterton police on [06] 370-0300 or the police non-emergency line.

Anyone with CCTV cameras in the area is also asked to make contact.
