A 20-year-old man has been charged after a young woman died when a vehicle rolled on Auckland's Muriwai beach last month.

Madison Marie Chamberlain, 19, died following the incident on 21 January 2024.

Detective Senior Sergeant Jason McIntosh said the man had been charged with dangerous driving causing death.

"Madison's death has had a profound impact for her family and loved ones, and the Serious Crash Unit has worked to investigate what led to the tragic event occurring.

"As this matter is before the Court, we are not able to comment further at this time."

The man is expected to appear in Waitākere District Court on 23 February.
