A woman was critically injured today after her motorcycle and
a car collided in Lynmore.
The crash at the corner of Te Ngae Rd and Allen Mills Rd
happened about 3.55pm, said Police Northern Communications
Inspector Earl McIntosh.
Traffic was backed up on Te Ngae Rd and diverted while
emergency services attended.
Mr McIntosh said the motorcyclist, believed to be in her 60s,
was taken to Rotorua Hospital in a critical condition. Nobody
else was injured.
A man working nearby, who did not wish to be named, said he
only noticed the crash when he saw the second ambulance reach
"We didn't hear or see anything until we saw another
ambulance whiz past. That's when we all went out to see what
was going on."
Police were investigating the cause of the crash.
