A driver is facing several offences after leading police on a wild pursuit from the Hunter to the Central Coast.
It's claimed a Nissan Navara stolen from a Maitland business caught the attention of police at around 1pm yesterday after it crashed into another car before driving off.
Police pursued the ute along the M1 towards Mount White before officers were forced to terminate the chase.
However the Polair chopper was also following the stolen vehicle - eventually tracking it to the Pacific Highway at Berowra where the driver became stuck in traffic.
A 27-year-old man was subsequently arrested, charged and refused bail ahead of facing court today.
