A man and a woman will face court after leading police on a high-speed car chase yesterday in the Lake Illawarra region.
Just before 3pm, officers initiated the pursuit with a Subaru WRX station wagon – earlier reported stolen – after it failed to stop in Barrack Heights.
The chase reached speeds of up to 140km per hour in a 50 zone, forcing police to halt the pursuit over safety concerns.
Shortly after, the Subaru crashed into a house on Blackbutt Way, causing damages to a brick wall.
The driver, a 39-year-old woman and her passenger, a 43-year-old man, were arrested and taken to Lake Illawarra Police Station.
The woman allegedly tested positive for cannabis.
She was disqualified from holding a driving licence, charged with six offences – including possession of a prohibited drug – and will appear in court today.
The man was charged with a drug-related offence and granted conditional bail. He will appear in court next week.
