On Sunday afternoon there were two motorcycles vs motorcycle accidents in the vicinity of Tokoroa at approximately the same time. This caused slight confusion for the emergency services teams at the time as these two accidents very at the same time.
The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to a farm, East of Tokoroa. A woman received a fractured leg and was flown to Waikato Hospital for medical treatment. The Greenlea Helicopter also attended the other crash, in which one rider sadly passed away at the scene.
