A woman critically injured in a head-on crash south of Dunedin yesterday has died.

Police said Milton woman Holly Ann Watt, 20, died in Dunedin Hospital earlier today as a result of her injuries.

Ms Watt's black sedan appeared to have crossed the centre line before the crash at Henley, south of Dunedin, about 7am yesterday.

It crashed into a northbound ute being driven by a 50-year-old Balclutha man, who sustained moderate injuries.

There was no update to his condition tonight.

Police tonight extended their condolences to Ms Watt's family.

A serious crash unit investigation is ongoing.
