Three of the youths in the other vehicle were taken to the hospital with injuries ranging from critical to moderate. Far North Area Commander Inspector Riki Whiu described the crash as “selfish and mindless behavior” and called it the worst outcome for the community, whānau, and responding emergency services. An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
