Students Killed

Salient Reporter

Auckland University students are considering a memorial to two students killed while taking part in a safety campaign.

The students were Annette Oakley and John Coombes, both of O'Rorke Hall, Auckland.

They were taking part with 33 others in a 50-mile safety walk from Maramarua, near Thames, to Auckland.

Most students wore white lab coats, and all were walking on the right-hand side of the road and wearing arm bands with reflectorised tape.

The accident occurred on the outskirts of Papakura. The two students were walking on the right-hand side of the road— there was no footpath—when they were struck from behind by a car.
