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.

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.
