Detective Sergeant Glenn Toy:

Police are appealing for witnesses who might have seen the dark-coloured Toyota Estima involved in a fatal crash in Whanganui on 9 November 2019.

Sixty-eight-year-old Jeanette Gibbs died after being struck by the vehicle while riding her 50cc scooter at the intersection of Georgetti Road and Anzac Parade at about 6.15pm.

A 41-year-old Whanganui man has been charged with manslaughter and is due to appear in the Whanganui District Court again on 4 December 2019.

Anyone with information can contact Detective Sergeant Glenn Toy at the Whanganui Police Station on 06 349 0600 or on the police non-emergency number 105.
