    Man killed in year's first fatal crash

    A 69-year-old Tauranga man has died in the year's first reported fatal crash, bringing the holiday period road toll to 11.


    A Tauranga man has been killed in a two-car crash on the Maungatapu Bridge.

    Emergency services were called to the incident on SH29A about 2.15am on Monday, police said.

    Police said the man was a 69-year-old local.

    The highway has since reopened and police are still investigating.

    The death - the first reported road fatality of 2018 - puts the road toll for the holiday period, which ends on January 3, at eleven.

    It follows two other fatal crashes on Sunday.

    A man died late in the afternoon after a car struck a fence in Whangarei about 10.30am.

    A second person was killed in a collision between a ute and a car in the Tasman District about 9pm.

    During the 2016-17 Christmas period there were 19 deaths on roads.
