Police are calling on the public for help with their investigation into an incident in Māngere where a man sustained critical injuries after falling from a moving vehicle. 

Emergency services were called around 8:30pm on Wednesday after a man fell from a moving vehicle on Robertson Road, near the intersection with Gadsby Road.

The vehicle involved did not stop after the incident occurred.

Det Snr Sgt Kepal Richards from the Counties Manukau CIB said the man who fell, who was in his 20s, was taken to Auckland Hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

"The investigation team are aware of a number of witnesses who came to the victim's aid immediately after the incident occurred," Richards said.

"Unfortunately, a number of these people did not remain at the scene and Police have been unable to speak with them. Police urge any of those people to come forward."

Police believe a light-coloured van or people mover, possibly grey in colour, was involved in the incident.

"Our enquiries are still in the early stages and police are continuing to canvass for additional CCTV footage or witnesses. At this point, we believe the vehicle involved has travelled away from Enuamanu Road and in the direction towards Robertson Road."

Richard said police would like to hear from anyone with information about the vehicle or those who were occupants at the time.
