Cruise ship passenger dies in Tauranga collision

A 71-year-old cyclist lost her life after a collision with a truck at the intersection of Mirrielees Road and Te Awanui Drive in Tauranga, New Zealand on Tuesday, November 22. The victim of the accident, which occurred around 12:15 in the afternoon, was an American cruise ship passenger who was in the country for a vacation.

Police declared the woman dead at the scene of the accident, and no other casualties or injured people were reported. The Commercial Vehicle Investigation Unit and the Police Serious Crash Unit are conducting further investigations into the matter to find out what factors could have influenced the accident to begin with. After the accident, the bridge was temporarily closed to public traffic to make way for the maintenance crew cleanups.
