A MAN is under police guard in hospital after a pursuit through Middle Swan last night that ended when the alleged offender crashed into a stationary car.|

A police spokesman said the chase lasted “a few minutes”.

“It was pursued east on Morrison Road, before it collided with a stationary Mazda hatchback, near the intersection of Morrison and Roe Hwy, Midvale,” he said.

“Both vehicles sustained front-end damage and fortunately the 25 year old female driver of the Mazda was not injured.”

The 34-year-old driver was detained soon after the crash after he allegedly attempted to flee police.
Officers seized a clip seal bag containing powder near the scene, which they allege was dumped by the accused.
The alleged offender suffered a medical condition, which police say is unrelated to the crash, and was taken to Midland hospital.
Police are yet to lay charges.
