A 25-year-old New Plymouth man has died in a single car crash in Taranaki.

The incident happened just before 6.30am today (Sat) when the car rolled south of Stratford, at the intersection of State Highway 3 and Climie Rd.

He was taken to hospital with critical injuries but later died, said a police communications spokesman.

Sleep deprivation may have contributed to the crash, he said.
