Double trouble for teen

By Brendan Rees

A teenager has been arrested after allegedly being clocked travelling more than double the speed limit in Clyde.

Police detected a car travelling 170 km/h in an 80km zone at 8.20pm on Thursday 13 August.

Cardinia Highway Patrol officers attempted to intercept the car on Limeburner Grove in Botanic Ridge but the driver allegedly failed to stop.

The Police Air Wing assisted officers on the ground, who successfully deployed tyre deflation options shortly after, police say.

It’s alleged the driver of the car then returned to Limeburner Grove and pulled into an address before being arrested.

A 17-year-old male was interviewed and is expected to be charged with conduct endangering life and failing to stop. The teen was also fined for breaching the directions of the Chief Health Officer.

He will appear at a children’s court at a later date.
