The victims of a fatal truck crash in Tararua district were a 40-year-old man and his seven-year-old son.

The pair died after the truck left State Highway 2 about 5km north of Norsewood around 12.30am on Monday.

The road was closed for much of the day with diversions in place, but was reopened in the late afternoon with a speed limit of 30km/h in place.

Police have asked motorists to adjust their driving to the wet conditions.

Inspector Dave White says police want to thank drivers for their patience and contractors for their "mammoth job" in clearing the road, especially with heavier than normal traffic due to the Wellington anniversary day public holiday.
