Teen in court over high-speed chase

A TEENAGER who allegedly led police on a high-speed pursuit at Chinderah on Wednesday was today refused bail when he appeared in Tweed Heads Local Court.

The driver, a 19-year-old Tweed Heads South man, had his case adjourned until Monday.

Police allege just after 1.30pm on Wednesday police from Tweed/Byron Highway Patrol spotted a stolen black Subaru station wagon travelling north on Tweed Valley Way, Chinderah.

Police engaged the vehicle in a number of short pursuits, reaching speeds of up to 160kmh.

A pursuit along the Pacific Highway ended when the Subaru crashed into a concrete wall on the off-ramp to the Gold Coast Highway, near Tugun.

The driver fled the vehicle but was later discovered by police hiding in grass and trees beside the roadway.
