Investigators have been unable to get to the site of a fatal helicopter crash in Central Otago due to bad weather.

Liam Edwards, 32, from Otautau was killed in the crash on Saturday while a 51-year-old man was taken to Dunedin Hospital to be treated for head and chest injuries.

The Civil Aviation Authority safety investigators were unable to get to the crash scene on Monday due to poor weather conditions but will try again on Tuesday.

The three investigators will be following up in Te Anau, Cromwell and Athol on Monday instead.
