A driver died after a single-vehicle crash south-east of Perth this morning.

It is understood the car, a Toyota Corolla sedan, was travelling east on Ranford Road near Bannister Road in Canning Vale when the driver lost control and hit a light pole about 3am.

"He lost control on a bend and struck a metal light pole before hitting a tree," a police spokeswoman said.

"The man, who was the only occupant of the vehicle, died at the scene of the crash.

"Police are investigating whether speed was a factor in the crash."

Police were urging motorists to avoid the intersection this morning because of “significant” traffic congestion.
