Warning: Some people may find the vision upsetting
Two people were killed and a car has been left in a mangled wreck after crashing into an Auckland building early this morning.
A man and a woman were found dead inside the destroyed vehicle after it veered off Pakuranga Road and crashed near Udys Road/Johns Lane, in Pakuranga, at 4.30am.
Bystanders standing on the pavement looked on as pieces of the dark Honda Accord were lifted onto a tow truck and driven away from the scene this afternoon.
Nearby, a power pole can be seen in the grass as a car grill lays next to a tree.
Speaking to media today, Senior Sergeant Jono Chappell said police are in the early stages of their investigation but "it's pretty evident speed was a contributing factor" in the crash.
Police say they want to hear from anyone who saw a dark-coloured Honda Accord near Pakuranga Rd around 4.30am.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Counties Manukau Serious Crash Unit on 09 261 1300.
