Dangerous driving and traffic crashes, Deeragun

Police have arrested two people following two traffic crashes which closed the Bruce Highway at Deeragun today.

At 10.45am, police attempted to intercept a red Holden Commodore utility without registration plates in Vincent, however, the vehicle failed to stop and allegedly evaded police.

Around 11.25am, police deployed a tyre deflation device on Black River Road but the utility continued to be driven on damaged tyres.

The utility stopped near a parked white Toyota Landcruiser with a trailer before a woman got out of it and allegedly drove away in the Landcruiser.

A short time later the Landcruiser crashed into another car and police arrested a woman.

The Holden utility continued to be driven south in the northbound lane of the Bruce Highway, colliding with three cars.

The alleged driver of the Holden utility then unsuccessfully attempted to enter multiple vehicles before police apprehended him at the scene.

A 20-year-old man and a 31-year-old female are assisting police with their inquiries.

The Bruce Highway was closed between Shaw Road and Wagner Street until 4.30pm when one lane was opened.

An officer was injured while attempting to intercept the woman in the Landcruiser and was taken to hospital with a laceration to his wrist.
