'Scary' police pursuit abandoned as manhunt begins
A CAR detected speeding on the Pacific Highway has led Coffs/Clarence police on a series of pursuits on the highway and through the city earlier this afternoon.
A silver-coloured Holden utility was seen driving with excessive speed around 2pm through roadworks on the highway at Glenugie, south of Grafton and was chased by a highway patrol car.
Coffs Clarence police said that a short pursuit ensued, but was terminated shortly after.
The car was again spotted at South Grafton and was chased by what witnesses said was four police cars.
