A sombre day.

One person has died after a crash on SH2 at Tangoio just after 12.30pm today.

The crash, involving a car and a utility vehicle, happened near the Tangoio Settlement Rd which runs off the highway about 17km north of Napier.

A second person received what police said were minor injuries.

The highway was closed about 2km north of the intersection while emergency crews worked at the scene and serious crash officers carried out a scene examination.

Police were advising people intending to travel that way to delay their plans as no diversions had been put in place. It was not known what time the road would re-open.

No other details were available.

I don't talk much about my half-siblings. I have 2 of them, and 2 step-sisters and 1 step-brother for that matter. I saw my half-brother about a week ago. He was at The Warehouse buying fireworks. I asked about my half-sister Jazminn. She was moving home soon. I saw her about a month ago in town. Usually I hide from her because she's a bit of a critical-fish (like Sister 1), but as she bore towards me with a smile on her face, I welcomed it and I'm so glad that I did.

This evening I saw her again in the hospital morgue wearing the same smile, for real. She looked baby-like and at peace with her demise. She was 27.

I wish my Dad & Step-Mother understood what I do. I couldn't cry for her because I'm happy for her. While we stood around her spiritless body, Brother 3 offered a prayer that I very much so appreciated. Then my Uncle prayed to Jah (Rastafari), which was rather entertaining.

It's no coincidence that Hubba and I sang Beautiful Zion most of the day.
It was just one of those days.

Thither I press with eager feet;
There shall my rest be long and sweet.

I promise you it will be sweet Jaz.

Gosh that's horrible and really young. I'm glad you were able to see her before she left.
