A teenage boy has suffered serious injuries after being hit by a van in the Auckland suburb of Mt Wellington.

The crash happened on Carbine Rd shortly after 7 this morning.

St John Ambulance crews rushed to the scene, shortly followed by police.

A police spokeswoman said officers were at the scene around 7.10am.


"We've got one person who's status two - they have serious injuries," she said.

The spokeswoman said the injured party was a teenage boy.

A local at the scene said it appeared the van had been heading northwards towards town.

Skid marks on the road appeared to show the van had skidded off the road and through a garden.

It had come to rest outside a food store on Carbine Rd, he said.

Diversions were in place on Fisher Rd and at Gabador Place, but have since been removed.
