The Serious Crash Unit is investigating a fatal collision which has occurred on Lower Buller Gorge.

The driver was initially reported overdue at 10:40am this morning as he was expected to arrive in Westport last night.

Police searched the route and the car was found off the road and had collided with a tree.

The driver died at the scene. He was the only occupant of the car.

The road is open tonight but a closure will be in place tomorrow to allow a crane to remove the car.
