Police are still investigating a crash that killed two men on Friday.

Murray Wayne Brenssell (known as Wayne), 64, and Toby Tieme Waitokia, 55, were killed in a single-vehicle crash involving a truck and trailer unit on SH 90 near Waikoikoi in West Otago.

Both were from the Tapanui area. Senior Sergeant John Pine said yesterday the crash cause was unknown.

"It's still being investigated by the serious crash unit . . . it will be quite in depth because it was a double fatality," he said.

The truck and trailer unit overturned and heavy equipment was needed to recover it. Police want anybody who saw the white truck and trailer before the crash, to contact them.
