Police in the Far North have yet to decide if they will charge the driver of a vehicle that struck and killed a 9-year-old boy at the weekend.

Te Paina TahiTahi was riding his bike at Houhora on Saturday when the accident happened.

His death was the latest of three on Northland roads in the past week.

Police said they were also still looking for a suspected hit-and-run-driver who killed a 67-year-old woman near Ohaeawai on Friday night and appealing for sightings of a blue Rav4 before it hit and killed a pizza delivery man in Whangarei.
