Drugs involved in many of Northland’s fatal road crashes, police say


More than a third of the people who have died on Northland’s roads this year tested positive for drugs, and police fear the numbers will continue to rise. Northland road policing manager Inspector Wayne Ewers said methamphetamine use was a problem on Northland roads, which have the worst crash statistics in the country . Toxicology results received for 10 of the 13 Northland road fatalities this year showed five had methamphetamine or cannabis in their system, while two also had alcohol.
