A WODONGA teenager accused of being involved in a police chase and a crash at Thurgoona on Wednesday was refused bail in Albury Local Court yesterday.
He was remanded to re-appear on Tuesday.
He faces charges of the pursuit, breaking entering and stealing, entering inclosed lands, driving while disqualified and driving at a dangerous speed.
Police said the chase took place about 10.30am on Wednesday on the Hume Freeway, north of Borella Road, when police from both Albury and Wodonga chased a red Ford Falcon.
They stopped the chase when the car left the freeway at Racecourse Road.
It then crashed after failing to negotiate a roundabout at the Corrys Road-Elizabeth Mitchell Drive intersection.
Police released two other teens, one from Thurgoona, aged 16, and the other from Albury, aged 15, on Wednesday afternoon while they further investigated the matter.
Victorian police are still investigating an aggravated burglary at a house in Bank Street, Yarrawonga early on Wednesday, before the chase.
Cobram’s Detective Sen-Constable Mat Prestage said he was preparing a brief of evidence, with charges that included aggravated burglary, theft of a car and driving offences relating to two pursuits in Victoria.
The occupant of the Bank Street home suffered a heart attack after the burglary and was taken to hospital.
Sen-Constable Prestage said the man was well enough to be released from hospital on Wednesday afternoon.
