NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 5/05/2016

Two people are in hospital after crashing a motorbike in Waikato, stealing a car and then crashing that as well.

One person received moderate injuries after the pair on a motorbike went into a ditch on SH26 in Morrinsville at about noon on Thursday .

Police say the other person on the bike then broke into a nearby home, took a set of keys and made of with a car parked at the property - prompting a police pursuit.

Although police abandoned the chase, the driver crashed shortly after and has also been taken to hospital with moderate injuries.

Diversions are currently in place for the section of SH26, although they are expected to be moved shortly.
