An elderly man has died after an uneven footpath caused him to fall off his mobility scooter.

The man was driving down Buckland Rd in Papatoetoe, Auckland, about 10.40am.

But he drove across a driveway that was uneven, and caused his scooter to tip.

He hit his head on the pavement and was unable to be revived despite CPR being performed at the scene.
