© Phil Walter/Getty Images A 13-year-old injured when a stolen car crashed in Northland has died and police are appealing for witnesses.

Emergency services found the boy at the scene of the crash in Bonnetts Road in Kaitaia on Sunday night after an unknown number of people fled the scene.

He was taken to Kaitaia hospital by ambulance before being discharged the next morning and taken to an address where he later died.

A post mortem has been completed on his body but toxicology results have not been received, Inspector Kevin Burke said.

Police are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen a white 2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara, registration DDR570, in Kaitaia on Sunday between 9-11.30pm.
