A Melbourne woman who was arrested after driving 82 km/h over the speed limit in Camperdown is currently being held in custody in Warrnambool.
The woman, 34, was originally spotted by police driving at 110 km/h in a 70-zone on Melbourne Road in Geelong on Saturday night.
She was pulled over but evaded police and continued.
The woman was later sighted in Waurn Ponds. A short pursuit took place, which was terminated after she failed to pull over.
Warrnambool Police Sergeant Tracie Kelly said the woman then drove down Camperdown’s Manifold Street at 152 km/h in a 70-zone.
Police then waited for her in Warrnambool. She was arrested in the car park of the McDonald’s on the corner of Liebig Street and Raglan Parade about 1.30am on Sunday.
While the woman showed no trace of alcohol consumption, Sergeant Kelly said she was “clearly affected by an unknown substance”.
“This was a shocking incident of reckless driving,” Sergeant Kelly said.
“No doubt lives were put at risk, but thankfully no one was injured.”
The woman’s vehicle has been impounded.
She is being held on remand and will face court in Warrnambool on Monday.
Warrnambool Police have requested any witnesses to contact them.
