Pursuit in Takapuna overnight

Pursuit in Takapuna overnight

Waitemata, 9 July 2014 - At around 12.20am this morning a Police car with two officers were patrolling along Hustmere Road.

The Police unit passed a Subaru vehicle that was travelling in the opposite direction and appeared to be driving erratically.

The officers turned around and attempted to follow the car, however the vehicle had gone through the roundabout at Anzac and Hurstmere Road and Police lost sight of it. A short time later it was spotted near the Milford Town Centre. Police activated their lights and sirens, however the driver of the vehicle failed to stop.

Moments later, the vehicle crashed into a pole at the intersection of Wairau and Shakespeare Roads.

The officers gave immediate first aid to the three males in the car.

The driver of the fleeing vehicle is 15 years old and is in Auckland Hospital with minor injuries.

The front seat passenger is also 15 years old and he is in Auckland Hospital in a critical condition.

The back seat passenger is 13 years old and is in Starship Hospital with moderate injuries.

The crashed Subaru vehicle was stolen from a Devonport address overnight.

The two 15 year-olds are from Mt Roskill. The 13 year-old is from Westmere. Their next of kin are with them at hospital.

Inspector Shanan Gray, North Shore Area Commander says a number of investigations are underway; "The scene has been examined by the Waitemata Serious Crash Unit, the CIB are also investigating and as is standard procedure, we've notified the IPCA."

"No Police officer wants a fleeing driver incident to end this way. These types of incidents are fast-moving and unpredictable and anyone who choses to flee from Police in this way not only puts themselves, but also the public at risk."

Pukeahu Park : ANZAC 100th Anniversary Dawn Service In Pictures

Roughly 18,000 people gathered this morning at Pukeahu Memorial Park for the Anzac day centenary. Anticipating the large turnout, patrons arrived as early as 4.30. It was virtually impossible to get near the Memorial after 5am. By 6, the crowds on Taranaki Street had stretched as far back as the Z Petrol station.

The screens erected around the park displayed the live events to those who had turned up. The heat generated by the huge number of people caused many to take a turn. Medics and ambulances were on hand for the fainting crowd members. Only twenty minutes into the ceremony, one medic said they had already dealt with 15 to 20 spells. More>>
