A 27-year-old Oamaru woman is dead after a crash near Moeraki, south of Oamaru on Thursday night.
The single-vehicle crash happened just before midnight on State Highway 1 near the intersection of Hillgrove-Moeraki Rd, south of the township of Hampden.
Sergeant Tony Woodbridge, of Oamaru, said it appeared the vehicle, which was travelling north, failed to negotiate a slight right-hand bend before it went over a culvert, through a fence, and came to rest in a paddock.
