Sydney: four men and two teenagers charged in pursuit that allegedly injured cops
Four men and two teenagers have been charged in an alleged wild chase in which a car rammed into police cruisers and injured two officers.
Six people – including two teenagers – have been charged in connection with an alleged wild vehicle chase in Sydney’s central west where two officers were injured.
The chase began after police observed a Land Rover driving on the M2 motorway in Baulkham Hills, Sydney’s northwest, at 11.20pm on Friday.
The vehicle was reportedly stolen from a property in Dundas earlier today.
An initial pursuit by officers was dropped, but a Polair helicopter followed the car through the west, mid-west and Sydney city before it entered the M4 WestConnex tunnel at Haberfield at around 1 a.m. 50 Saturday.
The occupants reportedly exited the Land Rover and entered a Toyota Echo parked in the tunnel.
As the Toyota was stopped by police, the occupants allegedly attempted to flee and drove towards a stationary police car, hitting one and colliding with another.
A Constable was treated for lacerations and taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in stable condition.
A second officer was slightly injured in the ankle.
The six occupants were arrested.
The Land Rover driver, 24, was taken to hospital under police surveillance and treated for minor injuries.
Three men in the Toyota – aged 20, 22 and 26 – were taken to Burwood Police Station.
A 14-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl were also taken to the station.
The members of the group have been charged with a series of serious charges, including predatory driving, motor vehicle theft, using an offensive weapon in a business to prevent detention, driving with a revoked license and driving with disqualification.
Blackett’s 14-year-old boy and Whalan’s 16-year-old girl have each been charged with being transported in a conveyance taken without the owner’s consent and breach of bond.
All four men were denied bail to appear in court in Parramatta on Sunday.
The teenagers will appear in juvenile court tomorrow.
A NSW Police spokesperson said investigations were ongoing.
