Janice and Graeme Fitzsimons - Graeme was killed yesterday. Photo / Supplied

A country music singer was killed when his car was sliced in two by a double-decker truck in Taranaki yesterday.

Graeme Fitzsimons, who was in his 60s, was killed instantly when his Honda collided with a vehicle transporter on State Highway 3 south of Uruti.

The truck driver was uninjured but very shaken.

The company he worked for, Auto Movements (NZ) Ltd, declined to comment.

St John volunteer John Oxenham said emergency services were alerted about 8.30am. They arrived to find the Honda in two pieces, about 15m apart.

"Half of the car was jammed between the bank and the truck, the other half was further up the road. It was cut in two pieces.

"There was no way we could get to it because it was a mangled mess."

Graeme and his wife Janice were regulars on the New Zealand country music scene.

I had the pleasure of being at a country music aftrenoon, where this lovely country music couple who singing.. Brought a CD from them.. Lovely singing by them both.

R.I.P. Graeme. My sincere thoughts are with the family..
