An unlicensed driver has left a trail of damage on Sydney’s Lower North Shore after a pursuit that began when he allegedly defied a police order to pull over.
Two police officers were injured when he allegedly reversed into them before the learner driver sped off, crashing into other vehicles before finally coming to rest after ramming an apartment complex.
The two male officers were taken to hospital and are in a stable condition.
The chase began at 8.30pm on Saturday, when police officers tried to stop a silver Audi sedan in Gladesville.
The car allegedly failed to stop, triggering a police pursuit which ended due to safety concerns as the Audi crashed into another car in Hunters Hill.
The driver, 33, was arrested and charged with multiple offences including assaulting police, hindering or resisting a police officer, not stopping in a police pursuit and being an unaccompanied learner.
He was refused bail and will face Parramatta Local Court.
