St. John was also taken to the scene.

A Christchurch Transport Operations Centers spokesman said the collision had closed the road to traffic between Scargill Valley Rd and SH7. The diversions were set for a while before reopening just before 11am.

The fatal collision comes just over two weeks in a row on the same road.

Tribal gang member Merc Papa-Hugh Lei-Tama Maumasi-Rihari, 21, was killed shortly after his Harley-Davidson collided with a car approaching Omihi Rd about 1.5 miles south of the Greta Valley, around 7.50am on November 2nd.

There have been at least 12 other collisions within a 900-meter stretch of Omihi Rd just north of Burrow Rd since January 2000, according to the NZ Transport Agency accident data. Of these, one was serious, four were minors and the others were uninjured.

There have been at least 27 deaths on the streets of Canterbury so far this year, 17 less than the same time last year. Nationally, 276 people have died on the streets so far this year, 20 less than the same time last year.
