1 min read

An alleged dangerous driving incident involving three motorists in central Upper Hutt yesterday is being investigated by Police.

At about 3.20pm yesterday, Police received multiple calls from members of the public who witnessed the drivers of a blue Nissan sedan, a grey Mazda Atenza, and a black Ford Mondeo sedan tailgating each other in and around central Upper Hutt.

“The drivers were seen to mount footpaths, narrowly missing pedestrians, and later colliding with two vehicles near McDonald's on Fergusson Drive,” says Sergeant Malcolm Lindsay.

“The actions of these drivers are incomprehensible, and it’s hard to believe nobody was injured as a result."

Police are following strong lines of inquiry and would like to thank the members of the public who have provided information. 

“We are committed to holding these offenders to account and we’d still like to hear from anyone who has dashcam or cell phone footage that might assist us.”

If you have any information regarding yesterday’s incident, please contact Police by calling 105 and quoting file number 211130/3669.
