Allegedly stolen car involved in crash

Two people were taken to hospital last night after an allegedly stolen car crashed into another vehicle near Perth Airport.

Police spotted the stolen Subaru sedan on Great Eastern Highway, near Tonkin Highway, about 11.45pm.

Officers lost sight of the car and were told it had been involved in a crash on Dunreath Road a short time later.

It is believed the crash happened when the driver of the Subaru tried to overtake another car at speed.

A police spokeswoman said he clipped the car before crashing into a Mitsubishi Outlander that was travelling in the opposite direction.

A 31-year-old man, who was allegedly a passenger in the Subaru, tried to flee the scene but was stopped by police.

The 36-year-old driver was taken to Royal Perth Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after firefighters freed him from the car.

The driver of the Outlander was also taken to RPH with non-life-threatening injuries.

No charges have been laid.
