A 24-year-old man was killed in a car crash just north of Invercargill this morning.
Senior Sergeant Dave Raynes, of Invercargill, said police were called to the crash, 200 metres east of Lorneville-Dacre Rd, at 6.30am.
The man, who was the sole occupant of a Honda saloon, was found dead at the scene, Snr Sgt Raynes said.
As yet there was no indication what caused the crash, but it was believed no other vehicles were involved, he said.
Police had closed part of the highway to carry out a scene examination and were yet to contact the man's relatives to confirm his identity.
