Subiaco: detectives collide with traffic lights at Hay St and Rokeby Rd intersection during chase

DETECTIVES collided with traffic lights while chasing a speeding motorcycle in Subiaco about 8.20pm last night.

A police spokesman said the detectives saw the Suzuki motorcycle driving dangerously after it went through two stop signs in back streets in the suburb.

The officers activated their car’s emergency lights and pursued the motorbike.

“The motorcycle did not stop and accelerated along Hay Street before taking a sharp right turn at the intersection of Rokeby Road,” the spokesman said.

However, the detective’s car did not make the turn and hit the intersection’s lights, damaging its front but leaving the two officers uninjured.

Witnesses of the motorcycle before the crash can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
