Part of SH6 in Marlborough closed following fatal crash.


A pedestrian has died after being struck by a vehicle early this morning on State Highway 6 between Pelorus and Havelock, Marlborough.

Police were called to the incident at 12:15am.

The road will be closed until around midday in order for the Serious Crash Unit to examine the scene, after which Police hope to have one lane open.
