North West Telegraph - - Telegraph News -

An 18-year-old man will face court this month after an al­leged po­lice chase in South Hed­land.

Po­lice say the driver failed to stop when he was clocked at 127km/h in a 90km/h zone in the early hours of Satur­day, Septem­ber 30.

When the of­fi­cers tried to stop the driver, he al­legedly ac­cel­er­ated and led po­lice on a chase through res­i­den­tial ar­eas of South Hed­land.

He was ar­rested and charged with reck­less driv­ing to es­cape pur­suit by po­lice and fail­ing to com­ply with di­rec­tion of po­lice. The driver faces manda­tory jail if con­victed.
