Unlicensed woman charged over dramatic police chase in NSW

A 32-year-old woman has been arrested and charged following a dramatic police chase through Moree, in northern NSW.

Officers were patrolling Edward Street on Friday afternoon when they attempted to pull over a maroon Holden Statesman for a random breath test around 3pm.

Police gave chase when the woman behind the wheel allegedly failed to stop, but they were forced to terminate the pursuit when the Holden left the road and travelled through a grassed area on Boland Drive.

They were treated by paramedics at the scene before being transported to Moree Hospital.

The 32-year-old female driver of the Holden Statesman was taken to Moree Base Hospital for mandatory drug and alcohol testing.

Police said the woman had never held a licence to drive before.

She was charged with several serious traffic offences, including police pursuit-not stop- drive dangerously, never licensed person drive vehicle on road, negligent driving, not give particulars to other driver; not give particulars to police.

Refused bail, the woman is scheduled to appear before Moree Local Court tomorrow, Sunday 14 August.
