Woman dead, two others hurt in Māngere Bridge, homicide investigation launched

A woman has died in Mangere Bridge after it appears she has been hit by a vehicle.

Two other people were injured in the incident – a woman has sustained serious injuries and a man has sustained moderate injuries.

There is currently a scene examination underway on Mahunga Drive and part of the road is currently closed while this is ongoing.

Counties Manukau CIB Detective Inspector Colin Higson said a number of enquiries are underway.

A post-mortem examination will also be carried out tomorrow.

“We would like to reassure the public that we do not believe there is any ongoing risk to the community,” Police said.

Police will release a further update once more information is available, however this is unlikely to be this evening.

We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
