New Zealand police said the accident took place around 1.20pm on Friday, at Mangatawhiri near Auckland.

The couple’s families have been informed of the accident and they have since gone to New Zealand to claim the bodies.

    Rest In Peace. Condolences to the families.

  5. I think Singaporeans must realize that driving in narrow country roads overseas is not the same as driving in the streets of Singapore.

    Tour agents should remind them of this so as to avoid such tragedies in the future.
