A man has died after the truck he was driving crashed on Auckland's northwestern motorway.

Police said emergency services were called to the crash just after 7pm on the city-bound lanes west of the Te Atatu interchange.

The truck had veered off the motorway, crashing into a lamp-post, then a tree.
No other vehicles were involved in the crash, police said.

Other motorists stopped to provide assistance to the man, who has died at the scene.
The Police Serious Crash Unit are in attendance and are investigating the fatal crash.


One lane of the motorway is closed city-bound between the Lincoln Road and Te Atatu Road interchanges.
