Two occupants of a car have died after a head-on collision with a truck southwest of Dunedin.

The crash occurred on State Highway 1 at 3am on Friday, near Riverside Road in East Taieri-Allanton.

Police initially said it claimed the life of the female passenger but later confirmed the male driver had also died.

SH1 is still closed following the crash with diversions in place at the Dunedin Airport turn-off and at Riccarton Rd in East Taieri.

The crash happened around the same time as another fatal car-truck crash on SH, south of Timaru. The driver of the car died following the collision at Makikihi.
