Police investigating double-fatal Boxing Day crash

"Police investigating double-fatal Boxing Day crash in South Canterbury seeking witness"

Police in South Canterbury investigating a double-fatal crash on Boxing Day are seeking help from the public to locate a possible witness.

The two-car crash happened around 8:35am on the Waimate Highway at Glenavy on Tuesday December 26, 2017.

Police have received information from another witness that a female driver of a red car was also at the crash scene, but left before emergency services arrived.

This unknown witness is described as Caucasian, in her mid-50s with shoulder-length dark hair.

She was driving a small red Toyota-style car.

Police have made inquiries in the Glenavy area but have not identified this woman as yet.

It is possible she lives elsewhere and was travelling through the area at the time.

Police would like to speak with this woman as a possible witness who may be able to help us with information to establish what happened prior to the crash.

If you can help, please contact Waimate Police on (03) 689 7272.
