Police have named the man killed in Saturday's crash. He was Riki Wallace Kirk, 19, a labourer, of Paraparaumu.

A 19-year-old remains in a serious condition in Wellington Hospital's intensive care unit, after the car rolled on State Highway 1 in Johnsonville about 3am.

Three others, who were in a Red Honda Accord, suffered minor to moderate injuries.

Police say speed, road conditions and alcohol may have contributed to the crash and are appealing for witnesses.
