A 29-year-old man has been arrested in relation to the fatal crash which claimed the life of Christchurch woman Rachael Harris.
He will appear in the Christchurch District Court on Tuesday facing a charge of dangerous driving causing death.
Harris, 62, was reportedly on her way home from helping an elderly friend during lockdown when the crash happened at the intersection of Marshland and Mairehau Rds on Monday night.
Police later appealed to the public for information about the other driver - who was in a silver 2004 Nissan Navara and allegedly fled the scene before emergency services arrived.
