One person is in a serious condition in hospital after their car crashed in an inner city Auckland suburb while fleeing the police.
Police say they spotted a car being driven dangerously on the Southern Motorway at 4.20am on Friday.
The driver failed to stop and a short chase ensued before the vehicle crashed.
The car landed on its roof at the Ladies Mile/Marua Road intersection in Remuera, leaving one person in a serious condition while the other was treated for minor injuries.
The crash caused a power cut to nearby homes, which has since been fixed.
The road was expected to re-open at 8am.
