Police chase stolen bread truck

A TEENAGER is in custody following a pursuit south of Sydney.

About 6.15am Wednesday, police detected a stolen bread truck travelling on Robinsons Road, Gwynneville.

Police said the truck had been stolen while making a delivery earlier in the morning.

Officers attempted to pull over the vehicle, however it allegedly failed to stop, and a pursuit was commenced.

During the pursuit, a Traffic and Highway Patrol officer deployed road spikes on Bulli Pass.

It's alleged the teenage driver attempted to avoid the spikes and swerved toward the officer.

He dived out of the way, suffering minor injuries in the process.

The truck continued and was pursued through Heathcote, where it's alleged it collided with another vehicle.

No one was injured in the crash, however the truck failed to stop and the pursuit continued.

The truck was eventually stopped in Valley View Crescent, Engadine and the 17-year-old male driver was arrested.

He has been taken to Sutherland hospital under police guard for mandatory blood and urine testing.

The officer has been taken to Wollongong Hospital for assessment.
