A car has slammed into a lamp post and then a tree in Mangere in South Auckland.

Police were alerted to the job on Mascot Ave around 7.40pm, and are at the scene, as are fire and ambulance.

A St John spokesperson says the driver of the vehicle has been taken to Middlemore Hospital with moderate injuries.

Police have confirmed the driver is female.

A witness in a nearby house says it looks like the woman took the corner at speed - and narrowly missed some children playing at a nearby house.
