The deceased driver was the only person in the vehicle, and no details of their age or gender have been released.

The driver of the semi-trailer has been spoken to by ACT Policing and ambulance officers, and is being counselled.

Detective Acting Station Sergeant Marcus Boorman said crash-scene investigators would be working throughout today to reconstruct what happened.

"We're still working through the scene, obviously it's a highway, 100km/h speed zone," he said.

"At this point it looks like the vehicles were approaching from opposite directions."

He said it was a complex scene, that would take plenty of time to piece together.

"Any collision where a very large vehicle is involved is very confronting," he said.

"We plead to people to pay attention, slow down and pay attention on the roads."
