A high speed pursuit across suburbs in South Auckland ended after the driver of a car and two more of its four passengers were stopped by police.

The car was chased after it failed to stop for police in Takanini.

A witness said the car was pursued down Redoubt Rd, before being stopped on Diorella Drive, in Clover Park.

A witness said he saw the car speed through a set of traffic lights on Redoubt Rd.


"I was stopped at traffic lights on and a black car without it's lights on came screaming through the intersection and t-boned a car, then drove off."

The witness said the car hit by the speeding vehicle was hit so hard, it almost skidded into his stationary vehicle.
