A person has been taken into custody after allegedly fleeing from police and crashing a stolen car in Māngere East this morning.

Police observed a stolen vehicle driving dangerously on the motorway earlier in the morning, then saw it again on Buckland Rd.

“It fled from Police again and no pursuit was initiated when it crashed at the intersection of Massey Road,” a police spokesperson said.

The driver clipped another vehicle at the intersection of Buckland and Massey roads, colliding with a set of traffic lights before striking another vehicle and coming to a stop.

Police said nobody was injured in the crash.
