  2. That's terrible news.....one person dead and many injured. RIP and hope everyone gets better.
  3. "Nissan Pajero"?
    Mitsubishi make tha Pajero
    Nissan make the Patrol and Pathfinder.

    Either way... Not a nice situation.
  4. Local news reports said that a motorbike burst into flames as it was hit and flew through the air, and that a biker had pulled out and hit the 4WD, which caused it to lose control and run into the other riders.

    I know the roads in that area really well - I grew up in that part of NZ. Bit spooked because yesterday a car almost t-boned the group I was riding back from Mornington with. Closest thing to a car v motorbike impact I've seen, and about 20 metres ahead.
