One person is dead following a crash north of Auckland and police are warning of traffic disruption.

The accident happened on State Highway 1, south of Warkworth, about 4.50am on Wednesday.

Two vehicles were involved, one ending up down a bank, police say.

One person was killed and four others were seriously injured.

SH1 was closed as the injured were extracted and treated.

"The only alternative route is via SH16 and diversions are being arranged," police said in a statement.

They hope to open one lane as soon as possible.
