Two people are dead after their vehicle hit a tree in the Auckland suburb of East Tamaki.

The car went through the intersection of Te Irirangi Drive and Dawson Road and hit the tree early on Tuesday morning, says Senior Sergeant Pete Marriott.

The pair, the only two in the car, were killed instantly.

Vehicle damage indicated the driver was travelling faster than the speed limit of 60km/h and early indications suggested the driver ran a red light, Snr Sgt Marriott said.

The scene will be closed while its investigated.
