Central Leader - - NEWS -

A man is in court af­ter crash­ing a stolen car dur­ing a po­lice chase.

A po­lice patrol spot­ted the stolen car on the North Western Mo­tor­way and gave chase just af­ter 8pm on Mon­day.

The driver of the car took the St Lukes off-ramp and car­ried on over the in­ter­sec­tion with St Lukes Rd on to the on-ramp, col­lid­ing with an­other car which tipped over.

The flee­ing car then hit a con­crete bar­rier be­fore the driver got out and ran away.

Po­lice say the chase lasted only a few sec­onds and no­body was in­jured.

The fe­male pas­sen­ger was ar­rested and the male driver was found and ar­rested shortly af­ter­wards.

He was due to ap­pear in the Auck­land Dis­trict Court on Tues­day.
