Police say they saw a suspicious vehicle in the Hamilton suburb of Bader shortly after 3am.

They say the driver didn't stop for police and there was a short pursuit until the car hit road spikes a few minutes later on Peachgrove Road.

Senior Sergeant Tina Shaw says two boys aged 14 and 15, and a 14 year old girl fled the car but were caught shortly afterwards.

The three will appear in the Hamilton youth court this week.

Last week three teenagers died after a police pursuit ended with their car crashing and bursting into flames.
