Update on fatal crash in Glenbrook

Update on fatal crash in Glenbrook

Police can confirm that it was a 67 year-old man from Glenbrook who died following a crash on Glenbrook Road this morning at approximately 8:20am. The crash occurred near the intersection with Glenbrook Station Road.

The circumstances around the crash remain unclear and officers from the Serious Crash Unit remain at the scene.

What has been established is that the 67 year-old man was travelling north in a Isuzu 4x4, following a Holden Commodore. There has been a collision involving both northbound cars and a light truck travelling in the opposite direction (south).

The 67 year-old man in the Isuzu 4x4 died at the scene. The male driver of the light truck was airlifted to Middlemore hospital with serious injuries and the male driver of the Holden Commodore was also taken to Middlemore hospital with moderate injuries.

Cordons have been lifted and State Highway 22 has re-opened.

Inspector Gary Hill, Area Commander for Counties Manukau South says "It has been a truly horrific morning on Franklin roads today with one death and two people critically injured."

"We urge all motorists to take extreme care when they get behind the wheel and not to get complacent."

If you witnessed either crashes and have not already spoken with Police, please contact Constable Alison Jelley of the Serious Crash Investigation Unit on 09 261 1300.
