A second serious accident in just over a week has happened again on Aviemore Drive.
On Monday night a vehicle travelling north on Aviemore Drive struck a parked car and flipped on to its side.
The driver was uninjured but was in some distress. He had apparently not been drinking, but witnesses suggested he had been inattentive.
A witness to the crash, Liz Li, was waiting to turn left out of a nearby business when she saw a Volvo clip a parked car and flip on its side. The young male driver was going “not too fast” but was “not focused on the road”.
Li left the incident soon after giving her details, as she had a baby in the car.
Fiona He, who owns a business opposite the accident scene, went outside when she heard an employee’s car had been damaged by the colliding vehicle. He praised members of the public for comforting the driver. “It’s so nice to see people helping out people in shock.”
The last accident was a fatality on August 9. Police have confirmed 37-year-old Mark John Siviter died at the scene on Aviemore Drive and another person was admitted to Middlemore Hospital with serious injuries.
The Serious Crash Unit investigation is ongoing.
