Another tourist hit and killed by a truck in Napier

Police update: The fatal crash victim was Murray Anthony Reid. He was reportedly a resident of Mount Manganui.

“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.

    Police have named the man killed after he was hit by a truck in Napier as Murray Anthony Reid.
    The victim was walking his bike across State Highway 2B with his wife, Glenys, when he was struck by a light truck about 5pm on Wednesday.

    So you’re saying that about 230 overseas people are killed on NZ roads on average every year? Um, our TOTAL average road toll over that period is only about 300-400/year; I think you’re out by a factor of at least 10.

      Since 2000, about half of all violent deaths including road crashes, adventure activities, murders…, involves overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers and new immigrants.
      Take the 2011 Christchurch earthquake, for example. At least 84 of the 181 people killed in the disaster were foreign nationals, and about 20 of the other victims were new immigrants.
      Roughly, the same proportions apply to the road deaths, murders and so forth. We have included names of a fraction of the victims on this blog. See content for details.

    I had no idea so many tourists were killed in the Christchurch disaster.
    would it be possible to have an official list of the victims names?
