Police are making ''another push'' for information about
the death of Rutger Hale (22), who died in a crash on State
Highway 6 between Lake Hawea and Wanaka, in October last year.
Mr Hale was killed by an unidentified object that smashed
through his windscreen and struck him while he was driving
between Lake Hawea and Wanaka on his way to work, accompanied
by his girlfriend.
Detective Sergeant Brian Cameron, of the Queenstown CIB, said
yesterday an inquest into Mr Hale's death would be held in
Queenstown on September 19. Police still hoped someone would
come forward with information, he said.
Police have carried out work including analysis of samples of
material found in Mr Hale's Subaru vehicle.
Det Sgt Cameron said because the case was before the coroner
he was not in a position to comment on any of its details.
''However, if you do know something about what happened on
that day, please come forward.''
Anyone with information can contact Det Sgt Cameron on (03)
441-1625. Information can also be provided anonymously to
Crimestoppers on 0800 555-111.
