Driver fatigue and slippery roads could have been the cause of a fatal crash between a car and a truck in Waikato last night.

District road policing manager Inspector Freda Grace said it seemed the car's driver had been killed after it crossed the centreline and collided with the truck.

Ms Grace said the driver was nearly home after a trip to the central North Island.
