Response pleases police

Police are pleased with the response to a request for information following an incident in which two young Oamaru women were hit by a truck on Thames Highway last weekend.

Sergeant Wayne Brew said Madeleine Horn (18) was still in a serious condition in Dunedin Hospital.

A Dunedin Hospital spokeswoman confirmed Ema McGeown (21), who received moderate injuries, had been discharged.

Police were working through the list of people who had come forward with information.
