Arrest after Auckland Harbour Bridge crash

10:30 pm on 6 December 2015

Police have arrested the driver of a car after a pursuit ended in a crash on Auckland's Harbour Bridge.

They say they received six complaints about a silver BMW which was overtaking dangerously and weaving through traffic as it headed south on the Northern Motorway from Dairy Flat on Sunday evening.

The car fled from police when they tried to stop it closer to the Harbour Bridge and it then got back on the bridge and headed back north.

Police said the five-minute pursuit ended when the BMW crashed into another car.

No one was seriously injured but the crash did close several lanes of the bridge, although it has now fully reopened.
