A section of State Highway 2 has been brought to a halt and won't be cleared for hours following a fatal two-truck crash near Te Puke.

Police say one person died at the scene of the crash at Pongakawa on Thursday morning while another was taken to hospital for observation.

Drivers are now being asked to avoid the area or to expect delays, with police saying the section of highway won't reopen until at least 5pm.

Diversions are in place at Pongakawa School Road for those coming from Tauranga and at Old Coates Road heading from Whakatane.
