Crash investigators are trying to piece together what led to a fatal smash in Launceston's north this morning.

A Bellingham man sustained lethal injuries when his southbound utility left Lilydale Road on Fingerpost Hill and hit a ditch, rolling and coming to rest on its roof.

The 73-year-old died at the scene.

Police don't believe speed was a factor and are preparing a report for the coroner.

Anyone who saw a white 2004 Toyota Hilux in the area is urged to contact investigators.
