The woman killed in a two-car crash in Hamilton on Christmas day was Chinese national Rongmei Wang.
Ms Wang, 71, had been travelling as a rear seat passenger in a northbound car that collided with an eastbound ute at the intersection of Avalon Dr and Te Rapa Rd, about 12:35pm.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation by the Waikato Serious Crash Unit and it will take some time to determine whether any charges will be laid.
Ms Wang’s death brings the Waikato Police District’s road toll to 45 this year.
