The 24-year-old woman was accompanied by a 29-year-old male, when she engaged in a police pursuit, after being recognised as being wanted on a breach of parole.

The woman was further charged with reckless, or furious driving exceeding the speed limit, and refusal to supply blood sample.

Her male passenger was also arrested and charged, with outstanding warrants and domestic violence matters.

The child was not injured and the driver is to appear in local court on July 4, 2013.
