NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 11/10/2016

A man with serious head injuries and burns has been found laying next to a flaming car in Lower Hutt.

But police say they believe some of his injuries aren't related to the fire.

Emergency services were called to the scene on Coast Road in Wainuiomata at 5.30am on Tuesday where they found the man laying next to a black Holden Cruze engulfed in flames.

He was flown to Wellington hospital, where he was in serious but stable condition in the afternoon.

Police have appealed for information about the incident, and are calling for sightings of the Holden, registration JSW312, in the Wellington area over the last 24 hours.
