Police car rammed in West Wyalong pursuit, man charged with Skye’s Law

A 25-year-old man will face Skye’s Law charges after allegedly leading police on a pursuit before ramming their vehicle in West Wyalong on Tuesday night.

Officers were patrolling Neeld Street when they noticed a Ford Falcon sedan with no number plates around 9pm on Tuesday.

They began following the vehicle, which allegedly sped up to 90km/h in a 50km/h zone.

Police tried to stop the vehicle, however it failed to stop and continued on into dead-end Gladstone Street. 

At this point, police allege, the driver turned the Ford around and drove straight at the police car, ramming the vehicle before continuing on.

As the Ford driver tried to turn into Church Street, it rolled onto its roof.

The driver fled on foot, but was apprehended a short distance away.

After being treated by paramedics, he was taken to West Wyalong Police Station and charged with being a disqualified driver, Skye’s Law, dangerous driving, unregistered and uninsured.

He will face Griffith Local Court on Wednesday.
