 At 7.20am this morning a Mazda utility vehicle collided with a tree on Mapara Road, Taupo.

Emergency services attended the driver and sole male occupant of the vehicle died from injuries at the scene.

Evidence indicates that speed was a factor in the crash.

Senior Sergeant Fane Troy of the Taupo Area Road Policing Group says, “This crash is another tragedy to our community. Since January there have been 10 deaths in the Taupo and South Waikato areas. Police encourage all our road users, both local and those travelling through, to follow the basic road safety messages. Slow down, wear your seatbelts, do not drink and drive, beware of distractions and if feeling tired stop and have a rest.”

Police will be in a position to name the victim of the crash tomorrow.

ENDS
