Charge over fatal crash


POLICE intend to charge a female driver following a fatal crash near Arrowtown last August.

Police said in a statement last night the woman could not be charged at present because she was overseas.

Allanah Walker (17) died and two others were injured in a twocar crash in Malaghans Rd, near Arrowtown, on August 22 last year.

Following an investigat­ion, police have decided to charge a female driver in one of the vehicles with dangerous driving causing death.

‘‘We have been in contact with the woman’s lawyer and she has been informed of this decision,’’ the statement said.
