Just before 5am Friday 6 October, police were conducting speed detection duties on Main South Road at Hackham when they detected a blue Ford sedan allegedly travelling at 96km/h in an 60km/h zone. Police activated emergency lights to stop the car but it failed to do so and took off at speed away from them. The car is believed to have been stolen earlier in the night from Davoren Park.
While police were attempting to catch up with the car they discovered that the blue Ford sedan travelling south turned right onto Seaford Road and lost control crashing into a retaining wall. The driver a 17-year-old girl from Oaklands Park was taken to hospital with life threatening injuries.
The passenger, a 24-year-old man from Brompton, has been arrested and charged with breach of home detention bail and theft of motor vehicle. He has been refused police bail and will appear in the Christies Beach Magistrates Court on Monday.
Main South Road was closed for north bound traffic between Seaford Road and Robinson Road, but is now open.
