A child has been injured in a crash that caused some delays in central Auckland early today.
Emergency services were called to a crash on the corner of Kipling Ave and Manukau Rd, in Epsom, shortly before 8.30am.
St John confirmed one person was taken to Starship Children's Hospital in a moderate condition.
Six other people were assessed and treated by paramedics at the scene. Their conditions were all ruled to be minor.
Several fire trucks were also called to the crash site and traffic quickly built up in the area.
Auckland Transport issued an alert about the incident and urged motorists to find an alternative route or expect delays.
"Kipling Ave is blocked, with delays in both directions on Manukau Rd as emergency services attend," a statement said.
"Avoid this route or allow extra time for delays / diversions."
'The car was upside down'
A passenger on a passing bus told the Herald a number of fire engines and police zoomed past about five minutes before they got to the scene of the crash.
"The car was upside down and there were quite a few fire engines. I couldn't see anyone in the vehicle."
He said he could not see emergency staff trying to remove anyone from the vehicle, but did spot what appeared to be a family standing nearby comforting each other.
Meanwhile, train commuters around the city can expect some delays early this morning after an issue on the network in the city centre.
Auckland Transport issued an alert at 7.46am telling people that the Onehunga Line is now cancelled between Britomart and Penrose in both directions.
Train network delays
"Delays and cancellations on the train network due to an earlier network issues at Britomart," a statement said.
Those using the Western, Southern and Eastern lines are being told that those are now all operating all the way to Britomart again.
However, at least one passenger reported that the Eastern line was not operating just before 8.30am and that people were being turned away from Panmure.
"Just got sent away from Panmure Station," the man wrote online.
"No app alert or anything - just a security guy when I already got to the station to usher people back out to the street."
