Two people have been injured this evening in a crash involving a driver who was fleeing from the police in Invercargill.

Police said a car being driven by a 17-year-old ignored police requests to stop and travelled at high speeds before colliding with another vehicle.

A woman whose vehicle was hit has been treated for minor injuries, while one of the passengers in the fleeing car suffered moderate injuries and is in Southland Hospital.

Police said both cars had been extensively damaged.
