Rider injured after police pursuit crash metres from hospital

A man has been injured after he crashed a motorcycle in front of a Greenfields hospital during an alleged pursuit on Thursday.

Police engaged in a pursuit with a black motorcycle when it allegedly failed to stop on Lakes Road about 11:53pm.

The chase lasted several metres before the rider crashed the bike at a round-a-bout in on the same road in front of Peel Health Campus.

Officers allege the man attempted to run from the scene but was arrested seconds later.

The man, in his 20s, was taken a very short distance to Peel Health Campus for minor injuries.

Charges are expected to be laid.
