Tauranga crash victim named

Emergency services at the scene of the fatal crash on November 22.

Police have released the name of the 71-year-old woman killed in a crash in Tauranga last week.

Carol Ann MacMillan was visiting Tauranga from the United States with her husband when she was involved in a fatal collision with a truck on Tuesday, November 22.

Carol had been on a cycling tour after arriving on the cruise ship Celebrity Solstice, which came into port the day before.

The crash happened around 12.15pm at the intersection of Mirrielees Road and Te Awanui Drive in Tauranga.

Dive Cres from Sulphur Point down to The Strand in the Tauranga CBD was closed for several hours to allow the Commercial Vehicle Investigation Unit and Police's Serious Crash Unit to carry out their investigations into the fatal crash.

The investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing and for that reason police say they cannot comment further.
