Es­ther Grace-lynn Che­val Bhana has been iden­ti­fied as the driver killed in a fa­tal crash on Sun­day.

Bhana, 33, who was the driver of the south­bound ve­hi­cle in­volved, died at the scene.

Two oth­ers trav­el­ling with Bhana were trans­ported to Toko­roa Hos­pi­tal with mod­er­ate in­juries.

The crash hap­pened 2 kilo­me­tres north of Ti­rau on State High­way 1 be­tween SH27 and SH29 about 4.08pm on Sun­day.

The Se­ri­ous Crash Unit is in­ves­ti­gat­ing, but po­lice con­firmed the car driven by Bhana crossed the cen­tre line and hit a north­bound ve­hi­cle.

‘‘We have at­tended five crashes in the last two months. Two of them were fa­tal.’’
