A pedestrian has died after a hit and run in Waterview, Auckland, early today.

Police said the man was struck by a car on Great North Rd, near Oakley Ave, about 1.20am.

He subsequently died of the injuries.

Police are looking for a silver Subaru stationwagon with front panel damage and are appealing to anyone who may have seen the crash to contact them.

Police initially closed Great North Rd but this morning a smaller area, which includes a bar and two liquor stores, had been cordoned off while the road was running normally.
