A car has crashed into a Wellington home this morning, causing a gas leak.
Cordons were placed around Byron St in Miramar after the 8am crash, but have since been lifted.
Contractors were working to remove the vehicle from the scene, a police spokesperson said.
The gas authority was also on site, but the leak was not thought to be a threat to safety.
Residents have been asked to avoid the area while emergency services deal with the situation.
A Wellington Free Ambulance spokeswoman said the driver has been taken to hospital in a serious condition.
