Police Charge Woman Over Evade Incident

Police are calling for information in relation to an alleged evade incident overnight.

A woman has been charged with multiple offences after a red Mercedes Benz, believed to be stolen, allegedly evaded police on Mole Creek Road at Mole Creek about 8.20pm Wednesday.

The vehicle reportedly travelled through Deloraine and toward Elizabeth Town at high speed before colliding with another vehicle near Railton Road on the Bass Highway.

The driver then allegedly drove at a police vehicle, before crashing into a boom gate on Dan Road at Elizabeth Town.

The driver, a 24-year-old Summerhill woman, was arrested at the scene and has since been charged with evading police (aggravated circumstances), dangerous driving, motor vehicle stealing, burglary and stealing.

She was also driving while unlicensed.

She was detained to appear in the Launceston Magistrates Court today.

Anyone with information, particularly dash cam footage of the vehicle travelling in the areas of Mole Creek, Deloraine, and Elizabeth Town at the time of the incident, should contact police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000 or via crimestopperstas.com.au
