The crash has blocked access to a side street.
The car was weaving in and out of traffic before it ultimately collided with a traffic light.
The man was travelling in the suburb in 2018 when he hit the 74-year-old woman while she was using a walker.
As of this weekend the fine for doing so has nearly doubled.
It's not yet known what caused the fire.
Two people have been hospitalised.
"You don't want to mess with me right now."
It has the thumbs up from a safety advocate and principal.
The official toll has been provisionally updated to eight, all taking place in the North Island.
