A Narre Warren driver of a stolen car has reached speeds of up to 130 km/h and disobeyed several red lights during a police pursuit through several Casey suburbs, a court was told.
Madison Riley, 20, pleaded guilty to several charges including dangerous driving during a police pursuit.
Riley had accelerated from police when they tried to intercept the stolen VW hatch with stolen number plates on Belgrave-Hallam Road, Hallam, about 2.30am on 26 September.
The pursuit, with the help of the police air-wing, spanned Endeavour Hills, Narre Warren, Cranbourne and Frankston.
After puncturing a tyre, Riley continued driving for two kilometres until the car was “boxed” in by police.
The car, which was stolen from Berwick the night before, was used in a petrol drive-off.
Riley was on parole at the time of the offence.
Magistrate Jack Vandersteen said that it would be presumed that Riley would serve further detention time in a youth justice centre on top of her cancelled parole period.
“I don’t want you walking away from here today thinking you’ll be getting a free kick for this.”
Mr Vandersteen said another traveller hit side-on at 130km/h at an intersection would be unlikely to survive.
“This is very serious offending on a whole range of bases.
“It’s just an absolute miracle no one was seriously injured or killed.
“Will it take someone to be seriously injured or killed for you to stop it?”
Riley will be sentenced at Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on 16 October, pending a youth justice order assessment.
