Robyn Bruce woke up in the early hours of the morning on the 12th of July after hearing a loud bang, then a car alarm going off at the north end of Otaki Beach.

“I heard a noise of a car drifting around the corner, then I heard my car alarm going off. I went out to turn it off and noticed my car was half up onto the footpath.”

After seeing the damage, Robyn called out to her husband Murray to check out what had just happened as she further inspected the car and the damage. Neighbors of Robyn and Murray had come out to see what the loud bang noise was. Murray called the police and waited for them to arrive.

“Murray called them, the police came within the half-hour. It was a very intense scene examination. I drive it and I felt quite emotional; I loved that car,” says Robyn.
