He did us all a favour

No costly court case, restorative justice or ongoing court costs here…

A 16-year-old boy was killed when the stolen Subaru he was driving slammed into a house in south Auckland this morning.

Police said the car driven by the 16-year-old failed to negotiate a corner before crashing at speed into the house in Otara about 4.20am.

It’s the car’s fault.  Bad car.  Failing to negotiate a corner.  

The house, on the corner of Franklyne Rd and Alexander Cres, suffered extensive damage, collapsing onto the car. Nobody was home at the time.

Sure it wasn’t the fault of the house being in the way of the car?

The driver was killed, while two other occupants in the car were taken to Middlemore Hospital in serious but stable conditions.

Police said the Subaru had been stolen, but police were not in pursuit at the time. It was not yet known if alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Police said the boy’s name would not be released until next of kin were notified.

Emergency services were still working to extract the vehicle from the house.

Sometimes Darwin does us all a big favour.  Perhaps not often enough.
