Highway patrol officers were involved in a high speed pursuit at about 6:30am Thursday morning. The dark Ford Ranger was traveling south from Holbrook towards Albury.

The speed of the vehicle was soon assessed at in excess of 180km/h in a 110km/h speed limited area.

Police have attempted to stop the vehicle however it has failed to do so, at which time police have declared a pursuit.

Further Highway Patrol units from Albury have then positioned themselves along the Hume Hwy where road spikes were successfully deployed at two separate locations.

As a result of the tyre spikes, all tyres have quickly deflated. Despite this, the vehicle was continued, with the tyres eventually being shredded and the Ranger running on the alloy rims.

The vehicle continued for another 2 km before the driver eventually lost control and the vehicle came to a stop in the centre median strip in the mud.

Police have removed a 15 year old driver and a passenger in their late twenties from the vehicle and placed them under arrest.

Checks revealed the Ranger was stolen from Sydney the previous night. Police located a quantity of drugs and knives inside the vehicle.

The driver and passenger are currently in police custody facing a range of charges for traffic and drug related offences. Investigations continue.
