Police who went to the home of a man they believed had just been killed after a police pursuit south of Auckland yesterday were met by him at the door.
Police officers found a passport in the dead man's pocket after the crash at the intersection of Patumahoe Rd and Waiuku Rd in Pukekohe about 3pm yesterday.
They thought it belonged to the driver, so went to the passport holder's address to break the bad news, Counties Manukau Police communications manager Natalie Swart told NZPA.
Instead they found the passport holder there, alive and well.
He told officers his car had been stolen a few days earlier, with his passport inside.
