A mother and her son survived two separate head-on crashes within four minutes of each other on the Kapiti Coast.
Annie Price, 65, of Wellington, is in intensive care after a freak accident at Pukerua Bay.
She was driving north through the township in her Suzuki Escudo when a tyre came off a ute and hit her vehicle, causing her to cross the centre line and crash head-on into an oncoming car.
Just four minutes earlier, her son had also been involved in a head-on smash…
Sergeant Mike George said it was “incredible and bizarre” that both mother and son were involved in head-on crashes, in which neither was at fault, within four minutes of each other.
“It was very, very bizarre. Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction.”

Coincidence? Yes. Cause that’s what coincidences are. Is someone going to tell me they angered a god? Crap happens. I feel bad for the family when trouble gets piled on like this.
