Police have laid charges against a woman more than five months after a crash that killed a 17-year-old.
Allanah Walker died on August 22 last year after a two-car crash on Malaghans Road in Arrowtown.
On Wednesday police said a woman, who is currently overseas, would be charged with dangerous driving causing death.
We have been in contact with the womans lawyer and she has been informed of this decision, a police statement said.

No court dates have been announced, and details will be released once the woman returns to New Zealand.
In a tribute read at Walkers funeral last August, her mother Sarah Walker said: From the moment you arrived you were a power to beyond reason.
You drove me crazy. You were like a cyclone, bursting with energy and filling the room.
Walker was remembered as an awesome and amazing daughter of Sarah and the late Brendon and crazy big sister of Ethan.
