“Unfortunately the man’s wife has witnessed the crash, which is horrific when you think about it,” said the local cop, Senior Sergeant Brown.

The victim’s identity is known, but his name won’t be released until police have advised the remainder of the family.

The intersection where the fatal crash occurred “is in the top five for serious and fatal crashes in the country, and was the scene of a near-fatal collision between a logging truck and a car only a few months ago,” according to a report.

The New Zealand Transport Agency is planning to install a roundabout at the intersection, where other people have also been killed, in the next two years, the report quoted the cop as saying.

“It is one of those intersections that for some unexplained reason people keep making mistakes with. The speed has previously been reduced to 80km/h to reduce the risk but perhaps this needs to be explored further in light of the latest crashes.”

Moderator’s note: New Zealand is plagued with poorly constructed roads, hundreds of blind spots, and fatal intersections that for obvious reasons lead to deadly crashes in which hundreds of people are killed each year.

About 3,400 overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers and new immigrants have been killed and at least 18,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since the year 2000.
