Two dead after car-van crash

Two people are dead after a head-on crash between a car and a van on State Highway 50 on the Napier Hastings motorway.

Shortly before 2am on Saturday, a van and a car collided on a bridge about 1km south of the intersection of State Highway 50 and Meeanee Road, Inspector Paul Jermy, of Central Communications, said today.

"It appears the car involved in the crash contained two occupants, whilst the van contained at least seven people.

"Three of the van occupants were thrown over the bridge and into a river about 15 metres below."

Two of those thrown over the bridge died at the scene, while a third made it to shore and was taken to hospital, Jermy said.
