Four people have been badly hurt after a police chase ended with the driver smashing into a parked car in West Auckland.
St John said two people were critically injured and two were in a serious condition.
Police said at around 2.30am today, officers attempted to stop the speeding car with a 17-, 18-, 19- and 25-year-old inside.
The driver fled from police and a pursuit took place for “a matter of seconds” before the car crashed into a parked vehicle on Atkinson Road in Titirangi.
A police investigation is underway and the matter has been referred to the Independent Police Conduct Authority.
