The Dukes Of Hazzard

December 2, 2011 by staff 

The Dukes Of Hazzard, A Dukes of Hazzard-style car crash in Bell Block has left residents wondering how no-one was killed.

The Subaru Legacy flew 15 metres off the motorway ramp and speared into the side of The Warehouse, shunting the concrete-slab wall back about a metre.

Witnesses say the car had been seen earlier travelling at 190kmh as it headed north from New Plymouth.

They suspect it had been racing another car during the drama at 4am on Saturday.

There were no skid marks or rubber left on the road to indicate the driver had attempted to brake.

Five of the six people in the car were taken to Taranaki Base Hospital.

An 18-year-old is in a stable condition in intensive care with multiple injuries.
