A pedestrian has been killed after being hit by a car in a carpark in Kumeu, Auckland, this afternoon.
Emergency services are the scene near a section of State Highway 16.
A St John spokeswoman confirmed there was one fatality. No one else had been injured.
Police are at the scene of what they say is a "commercial carpark" on SH16.
Senior sergeant Tony Miller, of Waitemata Police, said: "A vehicle has struck a pedestrian who has died at the scene.
"Due to the crash occurring in a carpark, traffic in the area is not being affected.''
The circumstances of the incident have not yet been released.
The Police Serious Crash Unit is investigating.
The accident happened around 2.50pm, police said.
A local resident driving past the scene said several police cars were parked at a property opposite a strawberry farm.
"[Police officers] were all standing on the driveway and there was a blue BMW parked just in front of the police cars.
"I didn't see an ambulance, but there were a lot of police there.''
The woman, who asked not to be named, said people often stopped their vehicles in that area and crossed the road to go to the strawberry farm shop to get an icecream.
Locals often complained how dangerous this was, she said.
Another woman who contacted the Herald said she and her mother were heading southbound on the highway when they saw up to six police cars outside the property.
A sheet covering a body could also be seen from the road, she said.
"[There were] a few people running back and forth across the highway.''
