A foreign student who was seriously injured when she was hit by a car in Takapuna, this morning, is in a stable condition in North Shore Hospital.
The girl was hit as she crossed the road to a bus stop on Anzac St towards Barry's Point Rd just after 8am.
"We're keeping an eye on her because she suffered a fair bit of trauma," a hospital spokesman said.
Sergeant Greg Ander said a patrol car was driving along Anzac St when the collision happened and saw the girl step out into traffic.
Takapuna Primary School principal Cindy Walsh said students came rushing into the school saying there had been an accident.
She saw a girl being put into the ambulance and about four police cars at the scene.
Walsh said her heart skipped a beat when she heard the news, fearing it might have been one of her students.
It was always a worry that a student could get hit on such a busy road, she said.
