Woman dead after Flatbush crash

New 8:34AM Saturday Jul 04, 2009
Alcohol is thought to have been a factor in a crash that killed a woman in south Auckland last night.
Senior Sergeant Spencer Matthews said the 24-year-old died after she lost control of her car at about 10.30pm while driving along Ormiston Road in the suburb of Flatbush.
She crashed into a stream and while she was pulled from the water she later died.
The woman was the sole occupant of the car.
Police were waiting for results of a post mortem but Mr Matthews said alcohol was most likely a factor in the crash.
