    Teen driving in fatal Dairy Flat head-on

    A 15-year-old girl driving without a licence has been killed in a head-on crash north of Auckland, along with her passenger.


    A 15-year-old unlicenced driver was behind the wheel of a car involved in a head-on crash north of Auckland which killed both her and her passenger, police say.

    The crash happened at the intersection of Dairy Flat Highway and Potter Road on Thursday night and has prompted a plea from police for people to drive safely.

    "Two people from the same vehicle died upon impact, this includes the driver who was a 15-year-old female who did not have a licence and a 25-year-old male passenger," Senior Sergeant Todd Moore-Carter said in a statement.

    Both were from Orewa.

    A third person in the vehicle is in hospital with serious injuries.

    The driver of the other vehicle was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

    Earlier in the evening, a 51-year-old male cyclist was killed following a crash in Te Atatu.

    "We had three people die overnight, and one is a teenage girl who had her whole life ahead of her," Snr Sgt Moore-Carter said.

    "At times we get a lot of criticism for having our road policing teams out as people think we are just trying to give out tickets.

    "We are out because we want to change dangerous and risky driving behaviour in the hope it will stop 15-year-old teenagers dying on our roads or 51-year-old men who were just out cycling.
