Three people have been injured after a brief police pursuit in South Auckland.

Police said a stolen car failed to stop for police and a short time later it collided with another car at the intersection of Roscommon Road and Wordsworth Road in the suburb of Clendon Park.

Each car had two occupants, with one person initially reported trapped in the fleeing vehicle, a spokesperson said.

St John said three patients were taken to Middlemore Hospital, one with serious injuries, one moderate, and one minor.
