Police investigations and welfare work continue following yesterday’s bus crash on Ohakune Mountain Rd.
Due to the nature of the injuries sustained by the young woman who died, formal identification is expected to take further time.
Therefore, we are not anticipating to be in a position to release her name today.
This is a distressing time for the family of the deceased and others who were injured, and Police and Victim Support will continue to comfort them.
