Police are still investigating a fatal crash on State Highway 6 between Havelock and Okaramio last month, Detective David Woodley, of Blenheim, said yesterday.

South African man Leslie Gavin Brown, aged 56, died after the head-on collision which happened just after 2.30pm on June 26.

Mr Brown was driving a white Toyota car travelling towards Havelock when his car was involved in a crash with a blue Falcon utility vehicle heading in the opposite direction.

A 56-year-old Christchurch man driving the blue ute was flown to Wellington Hospital in a critical condition and was later transferred to Christchurch Hospital.

He was in a general ward and was in a comfortable condition, a hospital spokeswoman said yesterday.
