Police charge three men who drove on wrong side of M1 Pacific Motorway

TWO men will appear in Wyong Court today, and a third will appear in Gosford Court next month, after they allegedly fled from police by driving on the wrong side of the M1 Pacific Motorway.

The alleged pursuit involved the three men, all aged in the 20s, driving what police said was a stolen Toyota Prado at Somersby around 3pm on Saturday.

The vehicle travelled on the wrong side of the M1 (Pacific Highway), with police terminating the pursuit. Assistance was provided by PolAir.

The alleged offenders dumped the vehicle at an Erina shopping centre and fled on foot, police said.

They were subsequently arrested by police and taken to Gosford Police Station.

A 26 year-old man was charged with 20 offences including revocation of parole, police pursuit (Skye’s Law), drive manner dangerous, driving while disqualified and take and drive conveyance. He was refused bail and will appear in Wyong Local Court later today (Sunday).

Two men, aged 23 and 26, were each charged with being carried in a conveyance and resisting arrest. The 23 year-old will appear in Wyong Local Court later today. The 26 year-old was granted conditional bail and will appear in Gosford Local Court in August.
