Charges have been laid over a fatal hit-and-run in Auckland.

A 19-year-old will appear in North Shore District Court later this week, facing counts of dangerous driving causing death and failing to stop.

The crash, at the intersection of Oteha Valley Rd with the motorway off-ramp on Friday night, killed a 15-year-old cyclist.

The driver handed themself in after media reports on Saturday morning about the incident.
