Steamed-up windscreen, then crash

Two people were transported to Dunedin Hospital after a vehicle with steamed-up windows collided with a parked car in Dunedin on Monday evening.

A nearby resident said that she heard a loud thud when the incident happened.

Senior Sergeant Mark Crawford said a single vehicle, apparently with a steamed up windscreen, collided with a parked vehicle.

Images taken by a bystander showed the windows of the crashed car were steamed up.

A police spokeswoman said they responded to a report of a parked vehicle being hit by a car.

The southbound lane on Kaikorai Valley Rd was closed for a short time, she said.

A Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesman said it responded with appliances from the Willowbank and Roslyn stations.

The two appliances assisted police at the scene, the spokesman said.

A St John spokeswoman said it was notified at 10.20pm.

One ambulance responded and two patients were transported to hospital with minor injuries, the spokeswoman said.
