Police Investigating Death Following Half Moon Bay Incident

An investigation is ongoing into a collision that occurred in Half Moon Bay on 10 December.

While a 22-year-old man is already facing numerous charges, Police are now investigating a sudden death a week on from the incident.

Five people were hospitalised at the time of the incident, including an elderly man, who was located near the scene of the incident.

Police are still working to establish the nature of his involvement, but sadly, this man died in hospital yesterday.

This will include a post mortem examination. At this stage Police are not in position to formally release any further details about the man.

We are making sure there is support available to his family.

All other victims have now been released from hospital.
