A motorcyclist has died in a crash that caused the temporary closure of Auckland’s Northwestern Motorway northbound lanes overnight.
Police rushed to the scene of the single-vehicle crash on the Northwestern Motorway near Lincoln Road around 10:25pm.
“Despite efforts by emergency services, the driver sadly died at the scene,” police said in a statement.
“Our thoughts and sympathies are with their family at this difficult time.”
The crash came after a motorcyclist was killed on the Kaipara Coast Highway in Kaukapakapa earlier on Saturday.
Investigations into both crashes are ongoing.
