A man escaped police after a chase reaching speeds of 150km/h - but forgot officers already had his licence.January 1, 2013 4:59am
A male driver led police on a high speed chase during Operation ConFest, after allegedly trying to avoid a random breath testing stop.
When the driver turned off the main road, police followed the Mitsubishi Nimbus and stopped and spoke to the driver.
After handing his licence to police, Deniliquin Police Chief Inspector Michael Tranby said the driver then sped away.
‘‘He sped off and police pursued,” he said.
Speeds reached 150km/h, but the chase had to be abandoned when the driver turned on to a dirt road – Balpool Rd.
‘‘He was then lost when he drove in to a paddock,’’ Insp Tranby said.
Police still have the licence handed over by the driver and are continuing investigations.
