Man injured at Queen's Birthday weekend dies

10:57 am on 23 June 2011

A pedestrian injured on the roads during Queen's Birthday weekend has died.

The death alters the road toll from zero to one, ending hopes that New Zealand has at last achieved a death-free holiday weekend on the roads.

However, police say the toll equals several other holiday weekends and still remains one of the lowest on record.
