Teen dies after bad weather crash

An 18-year-old man has died after a car crash on the highway linking the Hutt Valley and Porirua.

The Lower Hutt teenager was airlifted to Wellington Hospital after the crash on State Highway 58, the Haywards Hill road, in wet and windy conditions about 4.40pm on Thursday, but later died.

A 70-year-old woman, the driver of the other car, was admitted to Wellington Hospital in a stable condition.

Senior Sergeant James McKay says it appeared the crash happened after the 18-year-old’s eastbound car crossed the centre line.
