Two Children Arrested After Crash In Stolen Vehicle

As part of Operation Trinity, police have arrested two children following a collision in Frankston this morning.

Officers first noticed a 2015 silver Honda CRV traveling at high speeds along Cranbourne Road in Frankston about 1.15am.

Police attempted to intercept the Honda but were unsuccessful at the time.

The vehicle continued to travel through Frankston at high speeds when the driver failed to negotiate a corner and hit a fence, before crashing into a tree outside a residence on Coprosma Avenue, about 1.25am.

Initially, the driver fled from the severely damaged vehicle, before returning to the scene a few minutes later.

Both the driver and her passenger were uninjured in the crash and were arrested at the scene.

Two 16-year-old girls from Cranbourne and Noble Park are currently assisting police with their enquiries.

The Honda CRV is believed to have been stolen from an address on Durham Street, Richmond between 30 March and 1 April.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, has CCTV/dashcam footage or information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at
