A man has been found dead in his car in a paddock in Himatangi Beach in the Manawatu.
The 60-year-old is believed to have crashed his car in the paddock overnight, but was not found until 8am today.
“Speed is believed to have been a factor and early indications suggest the driver may not have been wearing a seatbelt,” road policing manager Inspector Brett Calkin said.
Investigations are continuing. NZN
