Two Car Collision on North Shore Road: 1 Driver Seriously Injured [Updated]

Wed, 2021-10-27

At approximately 4:10 p.m. today, Wednesday 27th October, 2021, police and other first responders attended a road traffic collision involving two motorcars on the North Shore Road, near the junction with Tamarisk Hill, Smith's.

The vehicles were headed in opposite directions when they collided.

The car in headed wast flipped onto the passenger side, with the driver, a 30-year-old male trapped underneath.

He was attended to at the scene by EMS staff for injuries which were described as life threatening and subsequently transported via ambulance to King Edward VII Hospital, in an unresponsive state.

The female driver of the other car which was headed west complained of chest pains. Though not considered life-threatening, the full extent of her injuries remain unknown at this time.

As a result of this collision eastbound traffic was being diverted over Store Hill, as the roadway just east of that point was closed, while the collision scene was being processed.

This has resulted in major traffic delays for commuters headed east.

We ask for your patience and understanding while we work to have the roadway reopened.

Update - Thursday, 28th October: 13th road fatality for 2021 identified.
