The car hit the building in Bader Drive, Mangere, at about 4.20am, ripping a petrol bowser from the ground.

The road was closed while the Serious Crash Unit and a fire crew were at the scene, but has since been reopened.

The Counties Manukau District Health Board said all four people were in a stable condition in surgical wards.
