Officers began pursuing a vehicle about 1pm, and the car crashed into a ute and a patrol car about 10 minutes later.

A 40-year-old woman and a 34-year-old man were arrested in relation to burglaries in Palmerston North, police said.

The woman is also likely to face driving charges.

Another woman was arrested this month in relation to the burglaries and charged with 24 burglary offences.

She is expected to appear in court next month.
