A man has been left with life-threatening injuries after the car he was driving crashed into a police car during a pursuit in Hamilton.

Police say the fleeing vehicle struck a stationary police car near the airport while officers were laying down spikes after 11am on Wednesday.

The chase had started after police tried to pull the vehicle, reported stolen, over and lasted about 10 minutes, Senior Sergeant Ray Malcomson said.

The driver was left critically injured and was being treated by paramedics.

The Independent Police Conduct Authority would be notified, police said.
