Car slams into M1 guardrail

Traffic chaos after police chase

Traffic has been brought to a halt on the M1 at Gaven after a dramatic police car chase.

It's believed police were called to stop a man driving recklessly in a white Holden Commodore around 12pm on Monday.

He then allegedly drove off, trying to ram police, before he collided with a guardrail in the southbound lanes on the motorway.

The man attempted to flee the scene, but he was tasered and detained by officers.
