The crash happened on Millar Rd about 2.45pm on Wednesday. In a statement, police said the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle was taken to Rotorua Hospital with serious injuries, where he died on Friday. He was 54-year-old Paul Bevan Beazley of the Bay of Plenty.
Last week, the road was closed and diversions were in place while the Serious Crash Unit investigated. A St John spokeswoman said two ambulances and one helicopter were sent to the scene.
