NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 29/11/2016

The person who died in a three-car near crash near the Moeraki Boulders in Otago a week ago was a female visitor from China.

Police have named her as Miss Li, 39, saying they are following a request to release only her surname.

Miss Li died at the scene of the crash in Waitaki District last Tuesday afternoon, while three others were taken to hospital.

The incident happened on a part of State Highway 1 known as Hampden-Palmerston Road and near the turn-off to the Moeraki Boulders, a tourist attraction on Koekohe Beach.

Police say they cannot comment further as the investigation into the circumstances surrounding the crash is on-going.
