Two seriously injured people found in vehicle by Ashburton police

Three people were seriously injured following an incident in Ashburton early this morning.

Detective Sergeant Colin Welsh said officers found two injured people in a vehicle in William Street at around 2am and took them to hospital.

He said police were carrying out “a separate job on the same street” at the time.

“A third person, also seriously injured, has been taken to hospital,” Welsh said.

“Early indications indicate that those involved know each other and police are not looking for anyone else at this stage.”

Welsh said an investigation was underway to determine what happened and urged anyone who was in the area at the time to contact police directly on 111.
