A two-year-old boy is in a critical but stable condition in hospital after running out onto a busy Auckland road and into the path of a car.
The boy's grandmother also sustained injuries after she ran out after him onto Mt Eden Road about 11.30am.
He was taken to Starship Hospital and his grandmother was in a stable condition at Auckland City Hospital.
Part of the road had been cordoned off, and traffic was being diverted.
Police remained at the scene, and the Serious Crash Unit was investigating.
