A Singaporean man died in a car accident in New Zealand on Monday afternoon. Reports said the accident took place near Hokitika on South Island.

The New Zealand police said in a statement that two cars crashed on State Highway 6 along Ruatapu road shortly after 12 pm on Monday. "The driver of one of the vehicles has died and two other people have moderate injuries," police added.

On Tuesday, Local news site reported that the driver who was killed in the accident was from Singapore. "It appears, on the face of it, that it was a head-on (crash), which would indicate one of the vehicles had crossed the centre line," the local news site quoted Sergeant Andrew Lyes as saying.

"We're keeping an open mind while the crash investigation continues," he added.
