One person is in hospital with serious injuries after a car crashed while being pursued by police in Auckland.

The person was initially trapped in the vehicle before being freed and taken to Middlemore Hospital.

Police say they began a pursuit in Manurewa around 6.37pm on Tuesday after the driver of a stolen car failed to stop.

The pursuit lasted just over five minutes and ended at the Puhinui on-ramp to State Highway 20B, when the car crashed.

The on-ramp was closed as emergency services attended the scene, but police say it has now been reopened.

The incident will be referred to the Independent Police Conduct Authority in line with standard procedure.
