A motorcyclist has died after hitting a parked car at speed in the Auckland suburb of Flat Bush.

The accident happened on Castlebane Drive shortly after 4pm on Saturday.

The motorcyclist died at the scene, police say.

The death is the third of the Queen's Birthday holiday weekend.

One person died in a head-on crash on State Highway 3 at Tanehopuwai on Saturday morning, and on Friday evening a 64-year-old Kaikoura man was killed in a four-car pile-up on State Highway 1 north of Dunedin.

The official holiday period road toll started at 4pm on Friday and runs until 6am on Tuesday. Last year five people were killed and 28 seriously injured in 96 crashes during the holiday weekend.
