Emerging trend: Tourist driver stopped, punched in face

English tourist punched in face in Greymouth

A man flagged down a foreign motorist, believed to be an English tourist, in Greymouth this morning, “ranted” at him and then punched him in the face.

“[The attacker] got out of his car,  went up to the driver’s window, reached in, grabbed the car keys, snapped them,” police said.

“He told the overseas driver he was a crap driver, ranted and raved a bit and punched the overseas driver in the side of the head.”

The incident follows reports of people removing keys from allegedly erratically driving tourists, earlier this month.

“On Monday, a family of five from China, including a baby, was in a rental car seen repeatedly straying onto the wrong side of the road as it travelled south along State Highway 6 on the West Coast.

“A motorist, who captured footage of the dangerous driving, later confiscated the driver’s keys and reported the incident to police,” according to reports.

German tourist admits careless driving in fatal Canterbury crash

Meanwhile, a 26-year-old German tourist has admitted his careless driving caused the death of a Leeston woman in a crash near Springston on February 23.

Daniel Muller, 26, appeared before a Judge in the Christchurch District Court and pleaded guilty to a charge of careless driving causing the death of mother-of-two Stephanie Anne Ellis, 54.

Ms. Ellis, who had recently left her job as a teacher assistant at Hillmorton High School’s Upland Unit, had to be freed from the wreckage of her car by firefighters, but died at the scene, said the Press.

An estimated 5 percent of all fatal crashes on New Zealand “death roads” are caused by foreign tourists driving carelessly.
