A Waimate man whose deer fence was smashed down by an out-of-control vehicle says the issue has been resolved.

"The person responsible came forward and explained the situation," said farm manager Rory Foley.

"It wasn't the fault of the lad who was driving, and they apologised to me and are happy to fix it at their own cost."

Mr Foley says he was encouraged to resolve the issue compassionately because the driver came forward and approached him.

It is understood the driver, who is known to Mr Foley, tried unsuccessfully to contact the Hook farm manager.

They were prompted by police and yesterday's Fairfax Media article to make amends.

Mr Foley discovered the trail of destruction on Sunday. The vehicle had ploughed through nine large wooden posts, and had been towed away, but a registration plate was left at the scene.
