Woman cut from car in Kaikorai crash

A woman had to be cut from a car after a crash in Dunedin last night.

Senior Sergeant Anthony Bond said police were called to Falcon St in Kaikorai at 10pm, after a car driven by a 45-year-old man crashed into a car driven by a 32-year-old woman.

The woman had to be cut from the car, and there was extensive damage to both vehicles.

Alcohol was believed to be involved and a blood sample was taken from the man, Snr Sgt Bond said.

Meanwhile, a stoush over burnouts led to a broken a window in Corstorphine.

Police were called to Middleton Rd at 11.15pm on Wednesday after the driver of a grey sedan took exception to a female resident telling him to stop doing burnouts at the corner of Stenhope Cres and Middleton Rd.

He threw a can of Barrel 51 at her house, smashing a window.

Inquiries were ongoing to locate the driver.

And police continue to catch drink-drivers in the city.

Police conducted a checkpoint between 8pm and 9.30pm in Westland St, Green Island, testing 278 people.

Two were over the limit. One person recorded 775mcg, while the other blew 250mcg.
