More care is needed around alcohol and driving to make sure no more lives are lost up the Waitaki Valley, says Constable Craig Bennett, of Kurow.
This follows a fatal crash on Hakataramea Valley Rd, near Cattle Creek, on May 10, and a potentially devastating single-vehicle collision on Special School Rd near Kurow on Friday.
Jarrad Blackler, 23, died and five other people were injured after the vehicle they were travelling in rolled on Hakataramea Valley Rd at 12.15am on May 10.
