A woman is in hospital after a car veered off the road and struck her in a hit-and-run in Auckland this morning.

Police said the 36-year-old woman was walking along Stadium Lane in Papatoetoe about 6.30am when a small grey car swerved onto the footpath and hit her.

Constable Corbin Elliott said the reason for the car veering off the road at the victim wasn't yet known. "It is possible that it was a drunk driver."

Police understood there were two or three people in the car.

There were no witnesses to the incident but a member of the public called emergency services when they heard the victim screaming.

The woman was taken to hospital for x-rays and assessment and the extent of her injuries was not currently known.

"The victim is very startled following the incident and we're looking to speak to the driver responsible for this as soon as possible," Elliott said.

Anyone with information should contact Elliott on 021 191 0206 or phone Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
