Chinese national Limin Ma has pleaded guilty over the crash which killed young Dunedin photographer Riley Baker.

Ma (41), of Shanghai, this morning admitted careless driving causing death over the crash on State Highway 1, near Shag Point, earlier this month.

Ma was charged after the car he was driving collided with Mr Baker's motorcycle.

Mr Baker was taken to Dunedin Hospital in a critical condition and died two days later.

Ma will be sentenced next month.
