Australian Driver Stops For Refueling During High-Speed Police Chase

Well, that’s something you don’t see every day; a high-speed police pursuit involving a BMW 3-Series north of Melbourne, Australia took a strange turn when the driver of the BMW stopped to refuel, not once but…three times in total.

Police arrested two girls, with the driver still on the run after a high-speed chase north of Melbourne.

The driver is believed to be a 15-year old boy and he was seen driving the 3-Series at speeds of up to 150km/h (93 mph) through Victorian towns. Police had to call off the pursuit as it was deemed too risky for the public, as the BMW driver narrowly missed pedestrians and at least one collision with a semi-trailer.

This allowed the driver to briefly stop at three different petrol stations for refueling, fleeing of course the premises without paying. The two girls got off the car during one of the refueling stops and headed to a nearby supermarket where the police managed to arrest them.
