Two men are in custody after an alleged carjacking led to a police car being rammed at Hastings.

Police say one of the alleged offenders pointed a gun at a man in his car in Cornwall Park at Hastings just after 6pm on Friday.

He then allegedly drove off toward Heretaunga but there were no sightings of the car until it was spotted by a police patrol car and followed at Mayfair at around 9pm.

The vehicle sped off and police deployed road spikes but the vehicle rammed a police car a short time later, officers say.

The driver was arrested at the scene and taken to hospital in a moderate to serious condition where he remains under police guard.
