    Miraculous escape after truck plunge

    The driver of a truck and trailer unit has walked away unscathed after the vehicle plunged 10 metres into the Karangahake Gorge on State Highway 2.


    The driver of a truck and trailer unit that plunged 10 metres down a gorge has walked away uninjured.

    The crash took place in the early hours of Friday morning on State Highway 2 between Paeroa and Waihi.

    Firefighters responded to the incident at 5am and helped the truck driver up the steep bank, Fire and Emergency northern shift communications manager Jaron Philips said.
