News from NZ Police
The driver of a BMW was killed in a collision with a Ford Territory crash on SH26 in the Coromandel on Saturday night. She was a 25-year-old Hawkes Bay woman, Hannah Louise Eaton.
Officers worked with colleagues in Interpol to contact Mrs Eaton’s next of kin following the crash that happened about 9.20pm.
Conscious of heavy holiday traffic, Serious Crash Unit investigators closed the road for a short period to carry out initial crash analysis but will need to return to the scene tomorrow morning about 10am.
Traffic management staff will be in place as traffic will be cut to one lane and motorists who can’t avoid travelling that stretch of road are advised to expect delays.
The official Easter Holiday period finishes at 06.00hrs tomorrow morning.
