A car dangling off the edge of a Mt Albert carpark brought Auckland’s Western train line to a halt this morning.
Police were called at 11.09am after reports the car had driven off the edge of the Pak’nSave carpark on New North Rd.
The trains were forced to stop while firefighters and police officers helped the driver out of the vehicle.
Hato Hone St John transported the motorist to Auckland City Hospital in moderate condition after they were treated at the scene.
Photos show the car barrelled through the wire fence and the windscreen is “completely smashed”, a reporter on the scene said.
Trains are only operating from platform one between the Morningside and Avondale stations. Auckland Transport is saying passengers should expect some delays and cancellations this afternoon.
