Pur­suit in Fin­ley

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Po­lice were forced to ter­mi­nate a car pur­suit in Fin­ley last Thurs­day night when speeds of at least 120km/h were reached.

Po­lice said they gave chase to the car when it re­fused to stop for a ran­dom breath test in Mur­ray St, Fin­ley about 10.40pm on Jan­uary 10.

Af­ter con­duct­ing a u-turn, po­lice said the car ‘‘sped south along the Newell High­way’’.

Po­lice al­lege the car reached speeds of up to 120km/h while try­ing to avoid be­ing stopped, dur­ing which time they say the driver over­took a truck and other ve­hi­cles and spent some time driv­ing on the wrong side of the road.

The pur­suit was aban­doned for safety rea­sons.
