9:47 pm on 6 September 2012

Police in Waikato say a driver fleeing from police officers has crashed into a car carrying a man and his daughter.

None of the parties were injured in the collision, which happened just before 5pm on Thursday in Hamilton.

Police say the 20-year-old driver was seen speeding by officers on Matai Street and pursued towards the intersection of Forest Lake Road, where she crashed into the other car.

Officers then abandoned the pursuit, to make sure the man and his daughter were not hurt.

Police say the woman was tracked to a Ranui Street property, where she was arrested for driving while disqualified.
