Man arrested after pursuit

A VIRGINIA resident was arrested last week after crashing into two vehicles following a police pursuit in Smithfield Plains.
The incident occurred at around 1.30pm last Thursday, when police spotted the man driving along Curtis Road in a beige Mitsubishi with unassigned registration plates.
Patrol vehicles attempted to stop the driver, but he ignored police direction and sped off.
A short time later, police were made aware of a collision at the roundabout at Curtis and Stebonheath roads, which featured the Mitsubishi sedan and two other vehicles.
The 25-year-old was charged with engaging in police pursuit, driving in a dangerous manner, leaving the scene of a collision, and driving unlicensed and with unassigned plates.
The man’s female passenger was taken to the Lyell McEwin Hospital following the crash, after complaining of chest pain.
She was released later that day. The driver of one of the other vehicles sustained minor injuries and received medical treatment at the scene.
Anyone who witnessed the incident, or has any further information, is urged to call Crime Stoppers (1800 333 000).
