An elderly woman is in intensive care at Middlemore Hospital after a four wheel drive ploughed into the bus shelter at which she was waiting with her two grandchildren yesterday.

The vehicle was travelling along Great South Rd, Manurewa about 4.30pm, when it lost control and smashed into the shelter on the corner of Halsey St, a police spokeswoman said.

The woman took the full force of the vehicle and was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

She was now in a critical but stable condition.

The two children, the driver of the vehicle and a passenger were also transported to hospital and treated for minor injuries.
