Kiwi comedian and stuntman Johnny Danger has reportedly died following a motorcycle accident this afternoon in Dairy Flat.

The death was one of two fatalities involving motorbikes across Auckland within 45 minutes.

It is understood Danger, whose real name is Johnny Bennett, died after a motorcycle crash in Lucas Heights, Albany.

Emergency services were called to the single vehicle crash on the Dairy Flat Highway at 2.34pm and one person died at the scene.

The road is closed and diversions are in place.

Police have blocked off the side of the Dairy Flat Highway where it meets Hobson Rd with road cones.

A police spokesman said family of the deceased had been notified and were at the scene.

Several officers were carrying out an investigation of the scene, and looked to be focusing on a broken down section of a fence, leading into a gully off the Dairy Flat Highway.
