NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 4/11/2016

Police have named a woman who died in a crash on State Highway 2 at Raupunga in the early hours of Thursday.

She was Takumanawa Kara, 20, from Hamilton.

The accident happened about 3.30am when the vehicle the woman was in left the highway and went down a bank, the Gisborne Herald reports. A man of about the same age escaped injury.

They were delivering household items to Wairoa from Hamilton and fatigue may have been a factor in the accident.

The serious crash unit's investigation is ongoing, police say.
