A MAN has died after a head-on crash between a ute and truck on a rural road near Truro, north of Gawler.

The crash on Sturt Highway, about 5km west of Truro, was reported to police just after 10pm on Sunday.

The driver of the ute, a 49-year-old Stockwell man, died at the scene.

The driver of the truck received minor injuries and was taken to hospital as a precaution.

The Sturt Highway was closed in both directions for several hours while Major Crash Investigators attended the scene but has since been reopened.

The man’s death takes the states road toll to 4, compared to 3 at the same time last year.
