Kaiapoi crash victim named
Police have released the name of the man who died in a car crash in Kaiapoi yesterday.
He was Peter Gray, 70, of Christchurch.
Gray was the sole occupant of a car which left the road and hit a house in Sewell St, about 12.20pm.
The house is unoccupied and is part of an area of red-zoned homes in the North Canterbury township.
The car travelled across the lawn and through a plaster wall at the side of the house.
A St John spokesman said the man had been confirmed dead at the scene.
A police statement said "although it will be for the coroner to determine the cause of death, there are indications that a medical event may have been involved".
