Man, 95, dies after two-car collision in Belfast, Christchurch
A 95-year-old man has died in hospital a week after he was injured in a crash in north Christchurch.
A police spokeswoman said the man had been in Christchurch Hospital since the two-car crash at the intersection of State Highway 1 (Main North Rd) and Dickeys Rd, Belfast, at 4.06pm on October 6.
"He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries as a precaution after the crash and has remained there since."
