Stingers stop fleeing driver

Police used road stingers to stop a driver who allegedly led police on a chase in Perth’s south last night.

The driver of the Holden ute allegedly failed to stop for officers after they were allegedly seen travelling at 122km/h on Mandurah Road at about 10pm. The road is understood to be a 100km/h zone.

Police lost sight of the car on Madora Beach Road but continued their pursuit after noticing the car during a traffic stop about 35 minutes later.

The officers used a stinger apparatus to deflate the tyres of the car after the driver turned into Lakes Road in Greenfield.

The driver allegedly ran from the car but was quickly stopped by police.

A 29-year-old Byford man has been charged with two counts each of failing to stop and reckless driving as well as one count of having no authority to drive.

He is due to appear in Mandurah Magistrate’s Court on June 24.

In a separate incident, a P-plate driver was charged with reckless driving after allegedly driving at more than 50km/h faster than the speed limit in Spearwood last night.

The 18-year-old Spearwood man allegedly drove a Holden Commodore at 123km/h in a 70km/h zone.

The man was charged with reckless driving and had his car impounded for 28 days.
