Nelson Police would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the events leading up to a fatal crash on SH 60, Appleby on 31 December 2017.

The crash was near the intersection of Blackbyre Road.

We would like to speak to people who were in the Nelson region and may have seen a dark grey Nissan 4x4 being driven between Tahunanui and the Appleby Highway between 8pm and 9pm on 31 December.

Investigators are particularly interested in sightings of the vehicle overtaking a small campervan just north of the Appleby overbridge, just prior to the crash.

We would also like to hear from anyone who was driving in the area at the above times and may have dascham footage which would help our enquiries.

If you can help, please contact Detective Sergeant Langridge on 03 545 9679.
