Police are still looking for the driver of a car involved in a hit and run in South Auckland that left a baby injured.

Police say a man was crossing Great South Road on Sunday afternoon, carrying his child in his arms, when he was struck by the car.

They say the father is fine. The baby was discharged from Middlemore hospital later in the day with minor injuries.

Officers have been interviewing witnesses, but say they are still seeking the driver involved.
