Police say excessive speed was a factor in a fatal crash in Waikato.

A 45-year-old man died on Friday morning when he left Tainui Road near Huntly on a bend, crashed through a fence and rolled in a paddock.

The man was from Waikato and was driving on rural roads that he regularly used, police say.
