Cromwell crash victims named

The two people who died as a result of a crash at the intersection of SH8B and SH6 in Cromwell last week have been named.

Chin-Yuan Chang (29), of Taiwan, died after he  turned right out of the intersection in the Subaru Legacy he was driving and failed to give way to a courier van going straight through.

The other victim was Ting Ting Mo (25), of China, who died later that night in Dunedin Hospital.

Two other female passengers who were in the back seat are still in the intensive care unit in Dunedin Hospital. One is in a critical condition, the other in a serious condition.

They are a 24-year-old Chinese woman and a 28-year-old Taiwanese woman.

A male passenger (24), of China, who was in the front seat of the car was treated at Dunstan Hospital in Clyde and discharged on Saturday.
