A 52-year-old man is dead following an early morning crash between a car and a truck transporting a house on State Highway 10 in Northland.

He was driving the car involved in the accident.

The driver and passengers in the transporter truck were shaken but unhurt.

 The road was closed until 4:15am to investigate the circumstances of the death.

The crash comes a day after the release of coroner's findings into the death of an Ashburton woman who died in 2013 when her car collided with a truck carrying a house.
