Man leads police on a wild chase through Mandurah


A police chase has ended with the driver crashing into four cars stopped at roadworks in Mandurah.

According to police, officers from the Regional Investigations Unit spotted the stolen black Hyundai Elantra on Gordon Road in Greenfields around 9am on Thursday.

The vehicle had been stolen from a home in Kelmscott on August 12, police say.

But when the officers tried to stop the driver, he allegedly drove off and led police on a 15-minute chase.

The driver turned onto Murdoch Drive in Greenfields but with traffic at a standstill due to roadworks, the allegedly stolen car crashed into four other vehicles.

Two of those vehicles were significantly damaged at the Bortolo Park scene.

The two men inside the stolen vehicle then allegedly tried to flee the scene on foot.

The passenger, a 44-year-old Gosnells man, was stopped by nearby workers and then arrested by police.

The driver, a 30-year-old from Orelia, allegedly ran into a nearby house and was challenged by the police dog squad.

He suffered a leg injury as a result of the arrest and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Charges are now pending for the driver.

The passenger will be charged with stealing a motor vehicle and possessing stolen property.
