Sad story ... 9 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 314
"They found two cars, a red Toyota MR2 and a silver Toyota Camary. Mr Winiata was dead behind the wheel of the red car. His passenger, and the driver of the other car, were out of the vehicles. They had received minor injuries and bruising and were shaken by the crash.

Mr Nicholls said the car driven by Mr Winiata was owned by Mark Patton, of Nelson. Days earlier Mr Winiata had driven into the vehicle while it was parked in Collingwood St. He had arranged with Mr Patton to take the car to Motueka on Monday, November 9, where it would be repaired by a friend. He was to return it the next day.

Mr Nicholls said the driver of the north-bound car, Peter Arthur, told police Mr Winiata's car started to drift across to his lane as they approached each other near the bridge. He thought Mr Winiata planned to turn across the road He slowed and swerved to the right as Mr Winiata veered back into his own lane."

You'd be surprised how many MR2 crash news alerts pop up on the Internet every week maybe two or three.

The thing that surprised me about this article was this line: "Coroner Carla na Nagara found Adrian Winiata's medication for mental illness and his consumption of cannabis had nothing to do with his death last November. "

RIP MR2 driver...

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Why would you let somebody that drove into your car a few days earlyer then take it and drive it to his friends house?

And as for driving with Mary-Jane

Still not to be advised.
