One person has serious injuries after their car flipped on Browns Bay Rd in Auckland this evening.

Emergency services were called to the scene just after 7.30pm.

Four fire trucks were initially sent after a caller said the car had hit a house and flipped, northern fire communications shift manager Megan Ruru said.

But it didn't appear the car had actually hit the house.


"One person was trapped but the person has been extricated by the jaws of life," Ruru said.

The patient was in a serious condition and another had moderate injuries, a spokeswoman from St John Ambulance said. Two ambulances and a St John emergency response vehicle were in attendance.

Police said the road had been partially closed to northbound traffic due to the crash.
