Man arrested following Kawerau collision

A man has been arrested following a collision between a car and two people on Plunket Street in Kawerau.

A police media spokesperson says the incident happened at about 3pm on Sunday.

A 35-year-old Kawerau man was due to appear in Whakatane District Court this morning, charged with one count of dangerous driving causing injury.

He will appear in court again on March 27th.

His arrest follows a report to police last night by a person who saw the footage on Facebook.

Police are making ongoing enquiries in relation to the incident and further charges are likely.
