Two young children were killed in yesterday's crash in Ashburton, police have confirmed.
Police have named the two young children and the 30-year-old woman killed in yesterday's crash in Ashburton.
Chante Alissa Harmer, 30, Awanuiarangi Shayelous-Jay Matenga Tapiata-Harmer, aged 19 months, and eight-month-old Wysdom Amara Francis Tony Jane Tapiata-Harmer died when the car they were in crashed on Monday morning.
The three were from Ashburton.
A station wagon and a ute crashed at the the intersection of Mitcham Road and Hepburns Road shortly after 10am on Monday.
Police said the collision happened at high speed.
Hepburns Road resident Brad Fallaver said drivers unfamiliar with the road would be at the intersection before they knew it, because it's not well signposted.
Mr Fallaver said there were no signs until right at the intersection, and once there it could be hard to see if traffic was coming.
