Bay of Plenty Police are appealing for any information or sightings of a vehicle that left a fatal crash site on Saturday night.

A man has died following a single-vehicle crash in Tirau yesterday.

The crash occurred on Prospect Ave, near the intersection with Ensor Place, about 10pm.

“Initial enquiries indicate the vehicle, a red 2001 Holden Commodore, failed to negotiate a moderate left-hand bend,” says Bay of Plenty Road Policing Manager Inspector Brent Crowe.

“It then collided with a tree, causing extensive damage to the vehicle.

“The driver died at the scene and the only other occupant, also a man, was flown to Waikato Hospital in critical condition.”

Police are appealing for any information or sightings of this vehicle in the Tirau area, along with a late model white Honda SUV, which was seen leaving the crash site.

It is thought to be fitted with black roof rack runners, dark tinted windows and a registration contained the letter ‘E’.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Tokoroa Police via 105.
