The 73-year-old man who died after a head-on crash north of Kaikoura on Thursday was David Orchard, of Paraparaumu.

The crash happened on a bend at Mangamaunu about 4.15pm.

Mr Orchard was flown to Wellington Hospital and died from his injuries the following day. His wife, 68, a passenger in the campervan, was not badly hurt.

The sole occupant of the four-wheel drive was a 26-year-old man from Queenstown.

A Christchurch Hospital spokesperson said yesterday he was in a serious but stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit.
