A fatal crash in Southland today appears to have been caused by a tourist driver who failed to stop at a stop sign, police say.
Pradeep Edirisinghe, 44, died at the scene of the two-car crash at the intersection of Riversdale Waikaia Road and Two Chain Road about 9.30am.
Two Italian tourists, both in their early 20s, were flown to Dunedin Hospital.
A woman has serious injuries and a man has moderate injuries.
The police said their initial investigation showed the couple, who were driving a van, failed to stop at the controlled intersection and hit Mr Edirisinghe's car.
