An investigation is underway after a motorist died in a multi-vehicle crash in the state's north today.

About 8.20am (Monday March 8), emergency services responded to the New England Highway, approximately 5km south of Tenterfield, after reports a Ford Falcon travelling south and a water tanker and a Toyota Landcruiser, both travelling north, had collided.

The Ford driver died at the scene. He is yet to be formally identified.

A male passenger in the truck suffered minor injuries and was taken to Tenterfield Hospital for treatment.

Officers from New England Police District have established a crime scene, which will be forensically examined.

The New England Highway was closed for several hours; however, it has now reopened.

As inquiries continue, police are appealing to any witnesses to the crash or anyone who might have dashcam footage to contact crash investigators.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
