Auckland, 26 February 2019
Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the families and friends of the three people who died and two who were injured in a traffic accident in the Bay of Plenty this afternoon.
Two of those who died were part of our Higgins business and one was a contractor working for us, while the two injured were contractors.
This is an absolute tragedy, and we are moving to offer our support to those affected and to our people in the area.
We are working with police and other authorities to establish the circumstances around this accident.
