A Trangie man has been charged following an investigation into a crash and police pursuit at Narromine last year.
About 10.40pm on Sunday, November 29, officers from Orana Mid-Western Police District attempted to stop the driver of a Holden Commodore sedan for a random breath test on the Mitchell Highway, Narromine.
When the driver failed to stop as directed, a pursuit was initiated but it was terminated when officers lost sight of the vehicle.
Shortly after, police found the Holden crashed and rolled in a paddock at Webbs Reserve near High Park Road.
The 31-year-old male driver suffered critical head injuries and after being treated at the scene he was airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital where he also underwent mandatory testing. He has since been released.
The incident was declared a critical incident and an investigation commenced by a critical incident investigation team from Central North Police District.
Following inquiries, just after 8.30am on Friday, the man was issued Court Attendance Notices for police pursuit - not stop - drive at speed, drive with high range PCA - second offence and drive recklessly/furiously or speed/manner dangerous second offence. His licence was also suspended.
The Trangie man is due to appear at Dubbo Local Court on Wednesday, April 14.
