A person died in a car crash on a rural Waikato road last night.
In a Facebook post Waikato Police said the accident happened at 11.10pm on Kakepuku Rd in Pokuru near Te Awamutu.
Police said the car drove off the road and into a ditch. The driver was killed.
No one else was in the car.
The post said it was too early to say what caused the crash but said it was a timely reminder to pull over and rest if drivers became tired, and to always wear seat belts.
The Serious Crash Unit is investigating.
