The mystery object which killed driver Rutger Telford Hale on
State Highway 6 near Lake Hawea last year almost certainly
came from an oncoming vehicle and caused the ''most unusual
wound'' a pathologist had seen in 30 years of practice.
Dutch snowboarder Coen van Rosmalen (24), who died after
being struck by a taxi in Wanaka at the weekend, had a strong
effect on everyone he met in his short time in the resort, a
friend said yesterday.
