A man is dead after a car left a road and struck a tree in Northland - the second fatal crash in the area overnight.

Police were called to the crash on State Highway 1, near Towai, just after midnight on Sunday.

The driver of the vehicle was taken to Kawakawa Hospital, but the passenger died at the scene, police said.

The death comes just hours after a man died when the car he was in crashed into a creek at Omanaia late on Saturday.
