End of the line

AN attempt to dodge police was stopped in its tracks on Tuesday when a male driver got stuck on the railway line in Morwell.

Police said the man attempted to escape police by crossing the train tracks running parallel to Commercial Road, opposite the Top Pub, but was brought to an abrupt halt by a less than level crossing.

“The male was driving the vehicle when he ran into police on Commercial Road,” police attending said.

“He attempted to evade police by using the train tracks as a means of escape and came unstuck when he tried to cross the rails.

“He was pursued by police on foot a couple of hundred metres up the road.

“He’s been located by police and interviewed for a number of offences – no charges at this stage.”

The incident occurred about noon and the vehicle was towed from the tracks soon after.
