A pedestrian struck by a reversing truck at the Countdown supermarket car park in Grey Lynn is in a serious condition in Auckland Hospital.

Emergency services were called to the crash on Richmond Rd about 10.30am.

The pedestrian, a woman in her 30s, suffered serious injuries which were not life-threatening, Inspector Peter Raynes of police northern communications said.

The woman was taken to Auckland Hospital, where a spokeswoman said she was in a serious condition this afternoon.

Mr Raynes said it was a "low-speed collision'' but the circumstances of the crash were unknown.

"A truck was reversing and has struck a female pedestrian that was in a car park,'' he said.

The police serious crash unit was conducting a scene examination. Alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the crash.
