News from NZ Police
A toddler died after being struck by a car in Rotorua this evening. The incident occurred shortly after 5.30pm on Turner Drive.
It appears that a woman was leaving an address on Turner Drive and was unaware that the child had followed her out of the house.
Her vehicle struck and killed the 16-month-old boy on the footpath. The driver is understood to be a relative of the child but ís not the child’s mother.
Police are investigating the incident and support is being provided to the family who are understandably distressed.
