A car has crashed into a water pipe in West Auckland, flooding the road and a nearby building and bringing traffic to a halt.

The car crashed into the pipe on Railside Ave in Henderson just after 2pm today.

An employee at nearby Toy World said there was a "huge water leakage spraying and leaking" all over the road.

She said police had closed the road.


Police spokeswoman Shelley Nahr said the woman who was driving the car was uninjured, and she was its sole occupant.

Police and fire crews were at the scene.
