Police were conducting random breath testing on Elphin Road, near Lyttleton Street focusing on south bound traffic leaving the CBD. At approximately 7:50pm, a white 2010 Holden Commodore Utility with a hard top and silver mag wheels was observed to pull conduct a u-turn prior to the RBT site and travel west.

Police attempted to intercept the vehicle which was then observed travelling at high speed on High Street where the vehicle committed a number of serious traffic offences and evaded police.

The driver was the only occupant of the vehicle and has been described by witnesses as being in his early 20s, wearing a white t-shirt.

The vehicle is a white Holden Commodore ute with a hard top, approximately 2010 model, with silver mag wheels, lowered, tinted windows and a sticker in the centre of the rear window.
