Three teenagers have been charged over a high-speed police chase that ended when officers used ‘stinger’ road spikes to stop the car.
The chase started about 10.30pm yesterday when police followed a stolen Hyundai i30 through Malaga.
The police helicopter tracked the car through Rivervale, Redcliffe, Ascot, Nollamara and Mirrabooka.
The car reached excessive speeds and frequently crossed to the wrong side of the road, police said.
Police eventually deployed ‘stinger’ road spikes to end the chase in Mirrabooka.
One officer received minor injuries after his foot was run over by the vehicle.
A 19-year-old Mirrabooka girl has been charged with stealing a motor vehicle, reckless driving, failing to stop and not having a license.
She will appear in Perth Magistrate’s Court today.
Police also charged a 15-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy from Mirrabooka with stealing a motor vehicle.
Another 15-year-old was released without charge.Police investigations are continuing.
