Te Anau Police are seeking witnesses to a traffic incident that occurred near Te Anau Downs last week.

Around 3pm on Friday 12 April, a blue Subaru station wagon was involved in a crash on State Highway 94 (Te Anau Milford Sound Highway) near Te Anau Downs, when the driver had to take evasive action to avoid a campervan.

The campervan was believed to be on the incorrect side of the road when going around a bend.

The Subaru was travelling south towards Te Anau, with the campervan travelling north toward Milford Sound.

Police would like to hear from the driver or occupants of the campervan or any one that witnessed the crash or may have been in the area at the time.

The campervan was described as a large white camper van, possibly a KEA brand.

Anyone with information should contact Senior Constable Stu Wright at the Te Anau Police Station on 03 249 7600 or via email on [email protected]
