Police are hunting for the driver of a car that crashed in the Auckland suburb of Orakei early this morning, leaving the front seat passenger dead.
The passenger was impaled on a fence post after the crash, and it took two hours to extricate his body from the wreckage.
The driver was seen fleeing from the scene.
Now why would you flee from a crash scene when your mate is in a very bad way beside you? With friends like that, who'd need enemies?
