NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 24/09/2016

One person has died in a single-car crash on State Highway One, forcing police to close all but one lane on the major highway in the Ruapehu District.

Emergency services were called to the scene just south of Springs Hill at 5.45am on Sunday.

Police say the section of highway south of Waiouru will be briefly reduced to a single lane while they investigate.

The crash was the fourth fatal incident overnight following one in Auckland and two in Northland.
