Police want to speak to witnesses of a fatal crash in Hastings.

Two vehicles collided at 11am yesterday on York Rd.

The driver of the westbound vehicle died at the scene but the second vehicle involved, travelling in the opposite direction, did not stop.

Police would like to speak to the driver of the second vehicle, which is described as being possibly dark green and from the 1990s.

Sergeant Paul Ormerod said the vehicle could be a Honda Accord and is described as being in a rough condition.

"We understand the driver has been following a silver vehicle from Flaxmere Avenue and Whitby Crescent area prior to this," he said.

"Police would like to speak with anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have any information."

Anyone with information is asked to call Hastings Police on 06 831 0700.
