A man walking on a dark country road has been killed after being hit by a taxi, police say.

The accident occurred at 2.15am today on Hokio Beach Road, Levin.

Police say a taxi was travelling along the road when it collided with the pedestrian, a 29-year-old Levin man, who had been walking west on Hokio Beach Road.

The man died at the scene.

''The deceased had been walking in a rural area with little street lighting and in dark clothing,'' police say.

The crash is being investigated by several police staff including the serious crash analyst.  The vehicle will be inspected and the scene analysed to determine the cause of the crash.

No other vehicles were involved.
