i dont wonder about this crash. i travelled over this road between waihi and tga around 6 30pm several times i was passed by other drivers on double yellow lines and on corners. i was travelling at the posted speed every time. at one stage i was following another vehicle doing 70 ks when we came to a passing lane and i went to pass, this vehicle immediately sped up to what i estimated to be about 130 ks and quickly disappeared. about 1 k after the end i caught up to this vehicle again doing 70 ks. the rego no was 3 letters and one number. a dark coloured suv type vehicle. it has been given to police along with dash cam footage. just out of paeroa i was followed by a ute so close i could barely see his head lights. agan footage sent to police
