LATEST: An 18-year-old West Coast woman has died after her car rolled early this morning.

The crash happened near Ngahere, 24km north-east of Greymouth, about 4.30am.

Police were informed of the crash by a passing motorist.

A police spokeswoman said the teenager was the only person in the car and no other vehicles were involved.

Road conditions had been wet, but the cause of the crash was not yet known, the spokeswoman said.

The victim was from the area, and police expected to release her name later today after other family members had been informed.

The police's serious crash unit were investigating the crash and were still at the scene this morning.

One lane of State Highway 7 was still closed at the crash site, but traffic was able to get through.
