A disqualified North Shore driver allegedly involved in a fatal two-car crash at Stonehaven has been released from hospital under police guard.
Jordan Kenyon is suspected of being behind the wheel of a white Holden Berlina that collided with a Red Barina on the Hamilton Highway late Wednesday night.
A 12-old-girl named as Mia Rossiter died in the crash, her 7-year-old sister Willow was critically injured and their parents Paul and Danica Rossiter are also in hospital.
Police have released vision of a Holden Berlina driving erratically earlier in the day of smash, and say they’ve received other reports of it being seen hooning.
“This incident was an entirely preventable tragedy that has torn a family apart…it’s the type of collision that infuriates us,” Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Peter Romanis said.
“We have a disqualified driver, driving at high speeds, weaving in and out of its lane.”
“It appears that there was very little opportunity for the Barina to avoid the collision.”
A 21-year-old passenger in the Holden Berlina was also taken to hospital with serious injuries after the smash.
Police are yet to announce any charges, but say a 28-year-old man is in custody and assisting with their enquiries after his release from hospital.
