Speed a factor in Upper Hutt motorcycle death

Police have named a motorcyclist who died after hitting a pole on Fergusson Drive in Upper Hutt.

He was Koro Robin Peachey, 37, of Wainuiomata.

Peachey failed to take a slight right-hand bend while travelling south and lost control of the motorcycle, colliding with a pole on Wednesday.

An investigation is continuing but excessive speed in a 50km/h area has been identified as a contributing factor.
