Police said the driver of one of the vehicles died at the scene.

The two children, both younger than 2, in that driver's vehicle were not harmed and were  being cared for by family.

The driver of the other vehicle did not have life-threatening injuries and had been taken to Hawke's Bay Hospital.

Traffic diversions remain in place around the crash scene on SH50 from Kereru Road in the north and Tikokino Road to the south.
