One dead, five injured after fleeing driver crashes into car in Christchurch

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

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.

White Ribbon encourages everyone to challenge the unspoken rules, so we can let boys and young men enjoy their individuality and define themselves as men who have respectful relationships with themselves and their partners – creating happier, healthier communities for us all.
