A driver was seriously injured in a car crash after the police abandoned a chase in south Auckland.

Officers spotted the car being driven at high speeds in Otara just after 11pm on Tuesday and started to follow it.

Shift Commander Kerry Watson said the pursuit was stopped after 90 seconds because the car was travelling at about 150km per hour.

The car was found crashed about three minutes later and the driver was taken to hospital in a serious condition.
