A person has died in Wellington after a serious crash has blocked an intersection on State Highways 2 and 58 in Lower Hutt.

A car and a truck collided at Haywards Intersection, where Haywards Hill Rd meets Western Hutt Rd, about 9.50am.

Police are now in the process of notifying the person's whanau.

The Serious Crash Unit is investigating and for that reason the road could be closed for some time.

Diversions are being put in place but police ask that motorists avoid travel on the state highways in the area and to expect delays.
