Police have confirmed the child who died in a serious two-vehicle crash in south Auckland last week was a one-month-old infant.

A police statement said the crash between a car and a light truck, at the intersection of Papakura's Ingram St and Porchester Rd, happened just after 10:40pm on Wednesday. 

One person died and six others were injured in the crash. 

Police launched an investigation, which found the person that died was John Ioane, a one-month-old infant.

"Our thoughts are with his family at this incredibly difficult time," police said. 

Police said no one has been charged, but the investigation is still ongoing. 

A 25-year-old man has been summonsed to appear in the Papakura District Court after refusing an officer's request to give blood.

He is expected to appear in court on February 16.

In a statement last week, police said four people were in conditions ranging from serious to moderate while two others had minor injuries.

The injured people were taken to Middlemore and Auckland City Hospitals, police said.
