Man arrested after person killed in south Auckland hit-and-run

Another charge has been laid against a man arrested following a fatal hit-and-run in south Auckland on Wednesday morning.

The incident took place on Thomas Rd in Māngere around 11:45am and led to a swarm of police activity in the area, with Newshub cameras capturing several people being handcuffed.

Det Insp Karen Bright said the identity of the man killed at the scene will be released in due course.

She said a 21-year-old man has since been arrested and is due to appear in the Manukau District Court.

In an update on Thursday afternoon, Bright said an additional charge of dangerous driving causing death has since been laid against him.

Police would still like to hear from any witnesses or those who were in the Thomas Rd area at the time, Bright said.

"Anyone in the Māngere area with dashcam, photographs or video footage of vehicles being driven erratically between 10am and midday yesterday is asked to submit this to our investigation team.

"We would particularly be interested in any footage of four vehicles being driven in an erratic manner around the Māngere area at the time.

"Those four vehicles are described as: a blue VW Golf, a white Mercedes sedan, a white Subaru Impreza and a white Ford Econovan."
