From Checkpoint, 5:25 pm on 8 June 2020

A keen gardener and volunteer, a legomaster and a young boy with a cheeky smile. Tributes have been flowing for three Raetihi residents who died in a farm vehicle accident on Sunday.

Mike and Bev Hiscox were in their farm vehicle with visiting grandsons 10-year-old Luka and five-year-old JJ when the vehicle crashed into a dam on their farm.

Mike survived the crash although the cause remains unknown.

Checkpoint reporter Logan Church is in Raetihi with the details.
