Embankment stops police pursuit

A 51-YEAR-OLD Stratford man found himself in a police chase Wednesday night after failing to pull over when indicated.

Briagolong police pursued the man after they caught his car travelling at 145km/h, well above the limit, at 7pm.

The chase ended when the man’s car struck an embankment, damaging a tyre.

No one was injured in the incident, although the man has since been charged with speeding and dangerous driving offences and will likely have his car impounded under recent hoon laws.

A court date is yet to be set, as police are still finalising the matter.
