A man is on the run after causing a head-on collision with a mother and her infant son before stealing a car from a Good Samaritan who stopped to help.
Police believe the man crossed the centre line as he turned a corner before crashing head-on with another car on State Highway 11 near Kawakawa in New Zealand at 8.20am on Monday.
A 32-year-old mother was driving the other vehicle while her 12-month-old son was sitting in the back seat when the crash occurred.
After the crash, a couple driving by stopped to help but the unknown man stole their car and fled the scene, leaving them to look after the injured mother and son.
