One person has died and another has been airlifted to Wellington Hospital following a two-car crash on State Highway One, just north of the Otaihanga intersection, about 10:30am on Friday (Sept. 30).
A young woman died at the scene and a man was in Wellington Hospital in a stable condition.
Kapiti Mana Area Commander, Inspector John Spence, said it appears the young woman, who was travelling in the northbound lane, crossed the centre line and collided with an oncoming southbound vehicle.
The Serious Crash Unit is investigating the cause of the crash. Motorists experienced extensive delays while State Highway One was reduced to one lane.
