Man on the run after police chase in Lismore
A MAN who led police on a pursuit through the Lismore CBD and South Lismore overnight is still on the loose.
At 2.30am police tried to pull him over after they noticed his car had a broken headlight and he had failed to give way at a stop sign.
He refused to stop, leading police around the CBD and towards South Lismore for about five minutes at a speed of about 40-50km/h, peaking at 80km/h.
The pursuit ended near Lismore Base Hospital on Bent St when the driver and one passenger made a run for it.
Two more passengers - a man and a woman - remained in the car.
The passenger who ran from the scene was found hiding in the bushes nearby, but the driver got away.
Police are now making enquiries.
