Auckland police want to speak to a woman with short pink hair after her vehicle struck a teenager in the city.

Senior Constable Andrew Tangney said although the woman, who was driving a blue Toyota Rav 4 SUV, stopped after the crash, she left the scene without leaving any details.

The 14-year-old was hit while crossing Heaphy St, Blockhouse Bay, about 4pm on Wednesday, October 25.
