Thumbs down 2 killed on Treble Cone Road
A man is fighting for his life in Dunedin Hospital after a 250m vehicle plunge near Wanaka yesterday which killed his two female companions.

Their four-wheel-drive vehicle careered off the Treble Cone skifield access road, rolling a number of times, before coming to rest in a dry stream bed below a waterfall.

The injured man was flown to Dunedin Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery. Dunedin police told NZPA today he was in a critical condition.

The two dead women's names and the nationality of the trio would be released later today once next of kin had been notified.

The accident occurred in calm, fine weather around 4.30pm about 4km from the bottom of the ski field access road, which had been open with no restrictions in place.

One of the occupants was thrown from the vehicle and was found about 50m from where it finally came to rest. The two other people were still inside.

Chief fire officer Steve Trevathan, of Wanaka, said firefighters extracted an injured person from the vehicle.

Treble Cone Investments Ltd chairman Nat Craig said last night the company would work with authorities and also conduct its own safety investigation.

The access road would be fully checked today before the skifield reopened.

Emergency services, including St John, the Lion Foundation Trust Rescue Helicopter, two local helicopter companies, the Wanaka Volunteer Fire Brigade and Queenstown-Wanaka Alpine Cliff Rescue team were called to the accident.

The road on Crown-lease land is maintained by Treble Cone.
