Chase driver in guilty plea

AN Albury man who endangered the lives of three people when he drove into a Lavington front yard yesterday pleaded guilty to a series of driving offences.

Danial Furner, 26, appeared in custody in Albury Local Court and entered pleas to eight charges including disqualified driving, dangerous driving and failing to stop for a breath test.

Furner was seen driving in Urana Road about 12.20pm on Thursday in a vehicle without a registration label.

He was pursued along several streets and drove at a police vehicle, forcing it to take evasive action.

His vehicle mounted a kerb in Neville Street and ended up in a front yard where three elderly people were standing.

They jumped out of the way and avoided injury.

Furner continued driving in Henderson Street and officers found the vehicle abandoned in Kotthoff Street.

A short time later police found Furner hiding in a shed in a backyard.

Magistrate Tony Murray ordered a pre-sentence report on Furner and adjourned his sentencing until April 23.
