A man has been arrested and charged after a car travelling on the wrong side of the road sent police on a wild car chase in Palmerston North.
CCTV footage provided to 1 NEWS showed a red four-wheel drive travelling on Tremaine Ave, in Roslyn, without a registration plate, police said in a statement.
The vehicle failed to stop when signalled by police.
The vehicle then did a u-turn as it headed towards a busy intersection, before its occupants attempted to escape on foot after the car came to a halt.
Two people have been taken into police custody.
A 38-year-old man has since been charged with failing to stop for police when signalled.
He is due to appear in the Palmerston North District Court on Thursday afternoon.
