A DANGEROUS driver who travelled along a footpath at Junction Square reached speeds of up to 120km/h in central Wodonga, and later hit 180km/h in central Wangaratta.
Annaliese Kirchen was charged with more than 50 offences following a string of pursuits and high speed driving in the North East.
Her offending came to end last month when she was found hiding under clothing in a home on Lowe Court in Wangaratta.
The 19-year-old had only purchased a gold Holden Commodore six minutes before coming to police attention in Wodonga on June 26.
A receipt shows the vehicle was bought at 1.30pm and police spotted the car on South Street at 1.36pm.
Rather than pull over, Kirchen accelerated down the wrong side of Church Street, narrowly missed another car, and sped down a walking zone near The Goods Shed at 60km/h.
She sped down a footpath next to Elgin Boulevard and made it onto High Street, ran a red light and hit about 120km/h as she drove north towards the Lincoln Causeway.
It was one of string of incidents before her arrest, including a fuel theft at an APCO petrol station on June 28.
She drove erratically on Bridge Street in Benalla on June 30 and stole fuel at the southbound BP at Glenrowan two days later.
Kirchen overtook a car on double lines on Greta Road on July 2, hitting 110km/h in a 60km/h zone, and hit 180km/h near Murdoch Road a short time later, passing a childcare centre while heading towards the CBD.
Police labelled it “an absolutely outrageous example of conduct endangering life”.
She was also linked to a break-in at a cafe on Myrtle Street in Myrtleford on June 17.
Lawyer Geoff Clancy did not apply for her release in the Wodonga Magistrates Court this week after his client pleaded guilty to dozens of charges.
“Ms Kirchen knows she’s receiving a term of imprisonment for this,” he said.
"There's no application for bail.
She will return to Wangaratta court on October 24.
