A man has died after a single-vehicle crash in Waitaki, Otago yesterday evening.
A single vehicle collided with a power pole on Duntroon-Georgetown Road, near the intersection with Taylors Road, just after 8pm last night.
Police can name the deceased, the sole occupant of the car, as 48-year-old Richard Paul Emery, of Kokoamo.
Following the crash, there was damage to the power pole and the road was closed for a time. Contractors returned to the scene this morning to remove the vehicle. The road is now open.
The Serious Crash Unit attended, and the circumstances of the crash will be investigated.
