No injuries in two road crashes

Police are calling two motorists lucky after they  walked away from open-road crashes  on Thursday.

Sergeant Kevin Reynolds, of Waimate, said a  woman driver suffered a medical event on SH1 near Waimate and her car hit  a concrete culvert.

The woman was checked by ambulance officers and found to have  suffered no obvious injuries, but was taken to hospital as a precaution.

About 4.30pm a driver on Waihao Back Rd, Waimate, swerved to miss  a cat, Sgt Reynolds said.

The car still hit the cat and the vehicle  rolled into a ditch.

The woman driver escaped without injury; the cat was taken to a vet clinic but its condition was not known yesterday.
