Ministry of Primary Industries will carry out their own investigation after an 11-year-old boy was hit by one of their cars near Ninety Mile Beach on the Aupouri Peninsula.

The boy was airlifted to Auckland's Starship Hospital in a critical condition after being struck on Te Paki Stream Road, an access route to the beach, on Thursday afternoon.

He is now in a stable condition.

"Our immediate thoughts are with the boy, his family and friends at this time," acting compliance director Garry Orr said.

"We are also supporting our fisheries officer involved in the accident."

MPI will carry out its own independent investigation.
