Tragic news in Christchurch today - a group of teenagers are believed to have been in a car fleeing police when the driver crashed into another car, killing an innocent man.
The crash happened at the intersection of Glandovey and Idris roads, in Fendalton, just after 4am. The man in the other vehicle, who was aged in his 60s, sustained critical injuries and was taken to hospital, but died a short time later.
Our thoughts are with the man's family and friends and with those of the others injured in this terrible incident.
