Emergency services responded to a serious crash on Remutaka Hill Road, north of Wellington.

A truck overturned and went down a bank. The crash is believed to have happened around midday.

Sadly, the driver of the truck died as a result of the crash.

State Highway 2 is closed between Kaitoke and Featherston. The road will be closed for some time as crews work at the scene.

A detour was put in place for motorists. Northbound traffic will need to use SH1 and go through Ohau, turn right onto SH57 where there will be another turn right onto Pahiatua Aokautere Rd, and then back onto SH2.
