Cheviot stalwart killed in crash

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Cheviot local Vernon Leslie Eade, 78, also known as Les, was sadly killed in a head-on crash on State Highway 1, just north of the town, on Sunday afternoon. His wife, Ann Eade, was badly injured.

Dave Eade described his father as an “incredible gentleman” and “eccentric genius”, who worked as an engineer.

Eade said his mum, who is in Christchurch Hospital with broken ribs, a cracked sternum with cuts and bruises, had no memory of the crash that killed her husband of 52 years. “She’s a very stoic woman. We’ve got to concentrate on getting her better.”

A police spokeswoman confirmed a 48-year-old man has been charged in relation to the crash and will appear in court on Monday.

Our thoughts are with Ann Eade and her family and friends.
